Hi. I've got three hens and a rooster. They are a local breed. The hens have started laying eggs. And since I don't own an incubator I was thinking of letting the hens hatch the eggs. So, I need some information on how to hatch eggs by the natural method. How many eggs should I give per hen? Will I need to provide heat? Will the rooster be a problem after the chicks have hatched? Will I have to separate him? Will it be better to remove the chicks after they've hatched or to leave them with the mother? Thanks in advance.
