Ive had a hen really wanting to keep her eggs. We have lots of eggs from the other hens so I figured why not [so of course she started stealing the others eggs but thats fine lol] Anyways to the point. I let the hen sit on them watching her closely. She picked up a friend who sits on them when she is eating or anything. They had done a great job... the first baby hatched at some point recenly and someone killed it Does this happen alot? Do you have to incubate them yourself? I dont really need chicks enough to invest in an incubator but... thats really sad that someone is just gonna keep killing the chicks. Should I not let them hatch them. Advice needed. Havent even had hens more then like oh... 7 months, still learning.
