Well I've been keeping chickens since...well January. Every talks about chicken math, well I talked my wife into getting 6 chickens and chicken Algebra later, we have 20 hens and 1 rooster. Well we had one if our 6 month old hens go broody and after a week of setting I placed 6 eggs under her on Sept 1st. The morning of September 21st we have 5 little chicks, one eggs was not fertile. We have let her do all the work and now are leaving it to her and nature to raise the chicks. She fluffs at the others if they get too close but none of the hens or the rooster lay real attention to the chicks. We have done nothing but set up a little maternity ward in the bottom of the coop so chicks don't tumble out. Just thought I'd post how our natural hatch is coming.
