I'd like my hens to hatch and raise their chicks on their own but I'm not sure how that works. My young chickens are laying eggs but they're not staying on the eggs. They seem to lay them and then leave. I've read a lot about broody hens but none of mine want to stay with the eggs. I have 26 hens and 2 wonderful roosters. They live in a spacious room inside our barn with an attached room that I set up just for egg laying. They all arrived together and are now 5 months old. I'd love to have more but just not sure about my hens' actions right now. Thank you for any advice.
