I love that all you people are chick hatching obsessed. I think you are all wonderful. However, I don't share that obsession. I thought that having chicks was fun, but a LOT of work!!! I don't have time for that again. I love my full grown, self feeding, egg giving, lovelies. I do want more chickens, though. How do i get more chickens? Well, I do have a rooster, but he isn't of a breed that I want. He and the hen that matches him are not nice. He is a good roo. He can stay, i just don't want his offspring. I don't like the idea of buying full grown chickens. I don't know where they've been, ya know? I could get older pullets, like 6-8 weeks. But I don't know about the whole quarantine process. I don't have the facilities for that. What I really want to do is get fertile eggs and have one of my hens do all that work in raising the little darlings. I have a BO who was spending about half the day in her box, screeching at anyone who dared open the door while she was there. But now she isn't really doing that. I was really hopeful. I tried putting all the eggs under her to see if she would set, but she left them. How do I get a half broody hen to go all the way?? Can it be done?? Help!
