So I managed to hatch out 3 German New Hampshire out of a dozen eggs, I lost power and everything else during incubation so I feel lucky that I hatched any. Buts its been a few months since the hatch and I ended up with 2 pullets and a little roo. They are very pretty already and I have hopes of incubating the eggs as soon as they are less pullet eggy. But I'm thinking the rooster will put those 2 hens through heck if he only has them for a year. I don't want to add more hens because the only ones I could add lay brown eggs and I'll have no idea what I'm hatching when I collect eggs. But I also hate the idea of keeping him in a cage for a year. But if I want more chickens from these guys I can't see what other options I have. Any ideas or experience you guys can share would be terrific.
