I am a new member of BYC, although I have been learning from the site for over a year. I have 4 orpington hens who are about a year and 3 months old. They are great egg layers even in the winter. My question is: Can't I get some fertile eggs, and put them under the hens and will they hatch them. I'd like some new chicks, but we have no Rooster. Happy dasher in Grass Valley!!
