I got my first chickens about 9 months ago. I have 3 hens and one rooster plus 3 newly hatched eggs. They are all Plymouth Barred Rock I went on vacation and came home to a chicken sitting on eggs, so got into the breeding process rather unexpectedly. I’ve been searching on line forums because I’ve had a rather distressing couple of days with 3 live births another 3 who were apparently eaten before I found them and how one that was abandoned during hatching. I have a number of questions about what I am doing wrong, what I am doing right and how I can save the rest of my unmatched eggs.
