Is it worth using my hens to hatch eggs?

    I don't think I need golf balls actually. Since I'll have 12 hens I'm probably fine using the eggs for them to sit on. Since I have a rooster though, the least that will happen is I'll end up with more chickens haha.

    Wonder what the mix would look like? It would have to be a BO mix with the chances of these breeds per egg.
    8% Mottled Java
    8% BLR Wyandotte
    8% Buff Orpington
    8% Easter Egger
    16% GL Wyandotte
    16% Dominique
    16% Barred Plymouth Rock
    16% Black Australorp

    Haha, what an interesting mix I'd end up with!

    Oh, you know, if you set barred rock eggs, with a buff orp rooster you'd end up with sex link chicks!
