Hi everyone, I'm Mike and I'm from the UK! This is my first post on here and it's very nice to meet ya' all... I currently have 20 hens and 1 cockerel and they are a complete mix of breeds and sizes (bantams and heavy breeds). But I have yet to raise my own chicks from my own eggs... Is it possible to just let a broody hen to do ALL the work of raising chicks? So right from sitting on and turning the eggs in the early stages to hatching and keeping them warm after hatching and "mothering" them on into young chick hood.
