This sounds like a bad idea, but I set 17 eggs, on first candling I realised that only 4 were developing. I took out most of the unfertilised eggs, and I am wondering if they would be ok to boil them and put them in the hen's / chick's feed? Disease is a worry, but it seems like such a waste. one of the four has hatched (my first ever!) and two had cracked and leaked, I am waiting on the last one.
