I'm considering purchasing eggs from the auction, and I have a few questions. Can I set them under a broody hen this late in the year (or later)? It's late in the year, and I've had so many chicks! (a hen just hatched 6 chicks yesterday)! However, I'm sore blue to have only had one baby Silkie! I purchased two hens this April, and I had a few problems with the egg laying. Not to mention, I would like a more "show quality" hen and rooster. Anyway, I know it's getting late in the game (September and all), but I live in Southeastern NC, and our winters don't start until late, and we normally don't get a lot lower than 35ish. So... I'm wondering if my hens would have a lot of success raising them this Fall? Anything tips? Suggestions? Thanks! P.S - I'm also considering just purchasing a cockerel and pullet, so yeah. Just looking at my options.
