I started a chicken farm a year ago, we sell chicken eggs to our community. We have been buying chicks from hatcheries to cycle our hens, I have the urge to do my own hatching instead of buying 300 chicks every summer. I am beyond excited to get started with this for I love our animals and can't wait to grow my own from an egg. ANYWAYS I bought an incubater ( 1588 Genesis hova-bator incubater) with chicken egg rack. I have 6 buff orpington hens with one rooster in a big enclosure pen. After a week or so I will start putting the hopefully fertilized eggs away for 7 days and start the incubation process. My question is: Will those hens set on eggs? My incubator will only do 50 max and I would love for those hens to hatch whatever else they lay until I can do another incubator process again.
