    Hello, I have 2 broody girls right now and one of them has hatched a chick. It’s been two weeks past the other eggs due date, and both of the hens are still sitting on them. Should I take their eggs away from them? The girls don’t seem to be moving off their eggs any time soon. Right now they are separated from the flock. There is also no chance that the other eggs will hatch

    If you are positive of the hatch date and that none were added to the clutch, toss the eggs.
