    Welcome to BYC! Glad you decided to join our flock. I've raised Buff Orpingtons for years and they are wonderful birds. They are hardy, beautiful, calm and gentle (my children, and now my granddaughter) made lap pets of them, and good layers of large, brown eggs. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Good luck with your BOs.

    Hello there and welcome to BYC! [​IMG]

    Buff Orps are very fun birds to keep. Very docile and friendly and great on the laying too!

    Make yourself at home here and if you have any questions about anything, feel free to ask. Welcome to our flock!

    In answer to your question, yes, you can let your chickens hatch their own eggs. All you need is a fertile rooster and a broody hen. Unfortunately, there is no sure way to make a hen go broody. Sometimes, letting eggs pile up in the nest works. Other times it doesn't. Some breeds are more likely to go broody and hatch chicks than others: notably, Silkies and Cochins.
