    When to remove infertile eggs?

    Greetings,

    So Kiwi laid a surprise clutch of 6 eggs, 4 of them have hatched already and the 5th chick should be hatching soon. However the 6th egg I know is infertile, I candled it multiple times and even now as the early eggs have hatched this one is still completly clear. (thank god Kiwi has such a mild temperament and doesn't mind me toutching the eggs)

    When should the egg be removed? Should I wait until they all finish hatching? Or just remove it now?
    I am worried about the dangers it might bring to the hatched chicks.

    Thanks in advance.

    In my view, I would not disturb the nest and leave the infertile egg in the nest. It will not hurt the new chicks. Sometimes disturbing the nest causes the hen to abandon her babies, and you do not want that to happen, for sure.
