Hi I have a broody on 5 eggs, hatch date is today or tomorrow. When I got home from work I saw an eggshell next to the nest, I looked under her and there was a chick that had hatched but was dead. There seemed to be a lot of yolk under it. Did it hatch too soon and the yolk hadn't absorbed? I feel terrible that I didn't check the nest on the 31st.
