Dumb Question Here But Do You Need A Roo To Have Eggs Hatch
yes. For the eggs to be fertile (so they will develop into a chick) you have to have a rooster and hen.
Yep. No roo, no fertilized eggs.
Well to have a fertilized egg -YES... You need a rooster...
If giving the broody hen someone else's fertilized egg then no as she will sit (hopefully) the whole time and hatch them herself.
If getting someone else's fertilized eggs and putting them in an incubator again no.
In general to make babies you need a female and a male.... Some flowers and plants can make babies (seeds) without having another plant but then again they have both male and female parts
Thanks i fiqured that was the case only makes sense but i see all these incubaters with eggs wernt sure do they have to hump or what im new to chickens
They do "birds and Bees" activity... Having a rooster can lead to a hen being fertile for a month after (it is what I have read but have no first hand knowledge)
