My hen sat on 5 eggs last season 3 hatched and the male killed them.So I guess take the male away next time.I've heard that both parents raise the chicks.Don't know why he killed them.

Another problem with hens hatching their own eggs is,as soon as they hatch the chicks scatter and disappear.So make sure your pen is as tight as you can get it.Fill in all the holes and make sure they can't get throught the wire.

Quote:oh i only made that mistake once...lol...my ringneck hatched out and those little buggers made it through the chickenwire holes and into other pens...we were so lucky they didn't get attacked by the other birds! So we have barriers in front of the doors where there is wire.
Live and learn huh?
