    I have a all black hen that is not laying eggs and a red hen that is laying eggs but she doesn't sit on them and I want her to sit on them so I can have some babies

    I'm not sure about your black hen but the red looks to be a Rhode Island Red and they are not known for being broody. Do you have a rooster? Even with broody girls, if you don't have a rooster, the eggs aren't fertile and you aren't going to end up with babies from them.

    Thanks for joining us!

    I do have a roster with them I think he is old enough to breed but I am not sure because I bought them from the feed store where o live and they didn't tell me anything about them

    G’Day from down under Sabrina [​IMG] Welcome!

    As you have already received some good advice and a link to the forum on which to ask your breed question, I will just wish you all the best.

    You might want to also pop in and say hello on your local thread: https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/26/where-am-i-where-are-you ‘Find your State’s thread.

    I hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun.

    If you would like to share pictures and stories of your flock, you have come to the right place. BYC’ers never tire of these and do not back away slowly or commence eye rolling when the photo album or home videos come out [​IMG]
