Well I just lost a chicken so this spring I plan to raise 2 more. My question is if you just put 3 fertile eggs where they usually lay when they hatch, will the chicken take care of the chicks? My other question is if you just buy 2 chickies will a hen take care of them, or just peck them. I want to do something where you dont have to integrate the birds in at a later date. Thanks!
