Ok on sunday i had 2 baby chicks hatched. They are outside in the coop along with all the other chickens. I have had hens sitting for a few weeks now. my questions are how can i check to see if any more fertile eggs and what do i need to do for my new baby chicks. the moms are very protective. Another question (and its a dumb one), Iknow you have to have a rooster to fertilze the egg but does the hen and rooster need to be the same breed?
