I'm thinking of hatching from my own chickens, how old should they be to have a healthy chick. Mine are 11 months old but I was just wondering what would be the right age to hatch a pullets eggs?

If they are past the stage of pullet eggs (small or funny shaped) and you have a roo than you are good to go.

I believe my chickens just turned a year old, and we put some of their eggs in the school bator last week. I would think as long as the eggs are coming regulary, not oddly shaped, and decent sized you should be ok.
