    if the egg she threw out is broken, its only the shell. if is
    not, the chick has not been born. is normal for the female be
    off the nest for a little time because she has to eat in order
    to fed the chicks. it she is out off the nest for a longer
    period of times, she is not feeding properly the chicks.
