    Hey everyone....new to the roost from Florida. First time chicken momma who inherited a rooster, and three hens from the previous owner. They are free range....low maintenance. ..and now we have babies. First egg hatched on May 29th.... and Fetty is faring well. 2nd egg on the 1st of June didn't make it. But the third has just started the hatching process. Any tips would be greatly appreciated because this is all new to me.
