The worst thing (to me) that can happen with my incubating eggs is that only 2-3 hatch. I had the thought that if that is the way it turns out I may go to the local feed store and buy some chicks to raise with them. I figure if I'm going to be taking care of any I may as well be tending to at least 12-15. The lady at the feed store told me that they will be getting chicks every two weeks starting March 9. Would it be better to let the (as yet unhatched) biddies grow a few days before buying any more? If the chicks at the store are a week or ten days old should I wait for some "new" chicks?
