Clarabelle's eggs started hatching last Sunday! She had two hatch on Sunday, one on Tuesday and one on Wednesday.
We also had an egg that she accidentally broke. I left it for a day, but then assumed that the chick had died. I brought it in the house and candled the egg, and didn't see any movement or anything. I peeled the top of the shell off at the air cell and saw a perfect little chick. I was getting ready to dispose of it when the chick wiggled. I proceeded to wrap the egg up and put it in a make-shift incubator in our bathroom. The chick survived all day and tried to hatch, but wasn't able to and didn't make it. I felt really bad, but there wasn't anything else I could have done, and if I had tried to help it anymore I could have done more harm than good.
