will chickens incubate there own eggs or is that just out of the question?
Yes, but they have to be "broody"( in other words they have to be wanting to sit on the eggs and protect them). If you want them to be incubated by a broody hen I would suggest investing in a Silkie hen or two- they are famous for being great sitters, AND great mommas!
hahaha thats awesome! do they make good eggs and taste good? oh! and are they worth a buck?
could i use them to hatch other chickens eggs?
I keep Brahmas, big birds, mine are going broody all the time.
They sit any eggs I give them (or just sit if I don't give them anything), and are very hardy in the cold winter.
Due to their size they can brood A LOT of eggs.
They can be worth quite a bit, but I am personally resisting selling any (I like them too much),
