Well, I've committed now and put some eggs under a broody hen I've never had any experience with hatching eggs, I've read up on it as much as I can, so I'm feeling fairly confident about it... but only time will tell! This is a first for my broody hen too, she's gone broody many times, but never actually hatched chicks, so now's her chance! I've got 2 eggs from my flock which I'm not sure if they're fertile or not (My roo is working, but I don't know if he gets around to all 24 hens, haha) and 6 pure Barnevelder eggs that I bought locally. I only put them under there today, so they're due on the 14th of November. I'm so excited Hopefully It all goes smoothly!
