    I 'm not sure if this is where I should post this question but here goes. I would like to hatch bantam eggs and only want about 8 hens and 1 roo. I know the odds are against me hatching hens but if I hatch 3 eggs of 4 different breed do you think I will end up with any hens? And how many roosters can live together without hens?

  2. i think, you will hatch at least one hen, but you never know!
    and i am not sure if roosters can live together without hens...
    but sounds exciting!
