Hi everyone, This year I decided to allow my two bantam old english game chickens to hatch chickens. I gave each chicken 4 eggs (one started last Tuesday - 9 days, and the other last Wednesday - 8 days). I candled the 9 days one last night and discovered that two eggs were fertile, one had a bloodline and the other was not fertile. Today I went out to check on them and noticed both chickens had a broken egg in their coop. Sadly, it turned out one of the fertile eggs from the first chicken was broken, leaving my with 1 viable egg. As for the second chicken, there was one fertile egg (maybe 2, not sure about the broken one). Since there are only two eggs left, I moved them both under one chicken. That said, it kind of sucks only raising two baby chicks, and its a little too late to start the other chicken on another batch of eggs. My question is: when the two chicks hatch, do you think I could just buy a few day old chicks from the local hatchery and give those to the mama chicken? Will she take them on? Or do you think she would end up ignoring them, leaving me have to keep these new ones separate?
