I have a pair of bantam black cohins I bought at an auction (marked as standard back Cochins) and figured since the eggs were so small it would more beneficial to try and hatch some chicks rather than eat them. I am brand new to the whole chicken thing and was hoping my hen would go broody and hath tem herself. She has now laid 11 eggs and has sat on them every night since the first egg but does not sit on them during the day. Will she be able to hatch these eggs only sitting at night?
