    I now have 2 hens sitting on eggs. 17 chicken plus 7 ducks eggs:) My big hen whose twice the bantys size laid too but her eggs aren't fertile. As of today all the bantys plus duck eggs are good. I will be taking the ducks out when they hatch since they will be huge compared to the bantys and duckings are messy.
    Do I need to take the baby chicks away b/c of the rooster?

    Well read some other post and etc online about the roosters staying in the yard, so I'm assuming it's ok.
