I have a broody mom who recently had her 1st egg hatched Dec 16, and just now I realized that there was an egg that has been hatched but not completely. It was right in front of her and I looked at it from a distance with a flash light and all I could see is small egg yolk. Two things came to my mind, either the baby chic got out and underneath her mommy or she ate the baby ( I read that some where). So I asked my husband to remover her from the broody coop and she really got upset. And there was no new baby chic, just the one that hatched 2 days ago. So when he was putting her back, she stepped on her eggs and cracked 3 of them, 1 was bloody. I took the 3 that was cracked and saw a little baby chic's inside . I closed her door and left them alone. Being inexperience caused the mommy hen 3 of her chics . But whatever happened to the one who hatched ?
