My sister is wanting me to hatch some eggs for her son to experience (got 2 neighbors who want the chicks, too!). I've never done this, only had chickens since February. So, my question is, how long since my chickens started laying should I wait before picking some to hatch? The EE's started in July and the Wyandottes & Orpingtons started end of July/early August. I have two roosters, who are defintely staying busy - it seems each hen gets bred twice as these two guys get jealous when one does the deed. Also, what would be a good beginner incubator? Thanks!
