    I am a new member from Wisconsin. I have had chickens for a year now but helped with them when I was young too. I have 13 laying hens and 2 roosters. Soon to be 1 rooster. They got along great when they were little but are quite a pair to watch. We love the eggs and are trying to hatch our own. Not so successful. [​IMG].

    Welcome to BYC. What breeds do you have? Buff orps, cochins and silkies (above all) tend to go broody often and would hatch eggs put under them.
