Hey there everyone! I'm relatively new to this whole chicken coop thing. Right now we have an assortment of laying hens, sonive got just a couple of questions. First, if we decided to keep eggs in the coop, would the ladies be able to hatch them on their own?? I have no idea how that stuff works, we've always gathered the eggs, but if at some point we decided to not gather them for some reason or another, or maybe just gatjered all, but 1 or 2 eggs from our collection that day, would the hens still sit on them to hatch? Second, we had a black snack IN the nesting box yesterday, first one we've had in the year that we've had chickens. I'm okay with snakes as long as I see them, or if someone else is holding them, but if I don't know they are there it's a bit of a surprise lol! Guess I better get used to that though! Anyways, my question is do you guys just reach in and grab them??! I don't think I'm ballsy enough to do that so I'd have no idea on how to remove it when my husband's not here! If you guys have any advice pleeeeease help me out!
