I am asking for help in new babies.
I am new to the chicken world and must say I am loving it. I also have to say that I am not very familar with the correct chicken terminology but am willing to learn:) so please excuse my wording. I have had my extended family since June 2006.
I have a chicken that has 18 eggs that she has been sitting on, I need to find out;
Is this a normal amount of eggs?
how long it takes for the eggs to hatch?
what would the percentage of hatchlings be?
and most inportantly, how do I correctly take care of them once they arrive?
I have a 13' X 7' chicken coop (dog run covered w/tarp) in this residence are 9 chickens, 1 rooster, 2 guiene's
do the chicks need to be protected from the others and if so, how?
Thank you so much,
