So my friend who gave me a SLW back in the spring gave me 3 green eggs today. I believe she has Easter Eggers and I know she has a rooster. So, has anyone tried incubating just 3 eggs? Should I put some of mine in there (mixed breed) just in case only one hatches? I want green egg layers REALLY BAD, but was going to wait until spring and hope one of my silkies or my LF cochin goes broody. I could easily brood 6 chicks or less as I have a small brooder box and a grow out box. I know these eggs are probably 7 days old or less. What advice can you give?
