I am new to chickens and bought some at an auction just for eggs and for the kids to have fun. It was a mix of hens and roosters. I don't know the breed. Mostly greenish egg layers. I had a hen that decided to start brooding, so I thought let's leave the eggs and see what happens. One of my 3 roosters decided he needed to brood with her and as a result eggs kept getting kicked out of the nest. The chickens started laying in other places and my young rooster who is at the bottom of the pecking order... Or so I think is a rooster... Started brooding the eggs. There's a pile about 10 or so and he sits on them religiously amd pecks at you if you try to touch the eggs. Today my son came running in and told me he heard the eggs chirping. I thought he was lying and sure enough and egg was chirping!! That was a surprise. After reading Google I learned that's normal and wow there's going to be babies!! My question is, should I separate the young rooster and 'his' eggs? Or do I just leave it and hope no chickens try and kill the babies? And can a rooster be a 'mom' to baby chicks or will this turn out horrible?! not sure what to expect or do? Any advise?
