I have the following chickens currently (we lost several already to predators): 1 Black Star rooster (super big jerk - but takes care of the girls) 1 Buff Brahma Bantam rooster (docile, and gets along with the jerk) 2 Black Star girlies (kind of aggressive as girls go) 1 Americauna (nice gal) 1 Light Brahma (gentle giant) 1 Buff Brahma Bantam girlie (my favorite! sweet as a doll!) We lost 2 really good layers and are down to only 5 now, and I can't be sure all of them are laying. I know the eggs of the bantam and americana, but I don't know about the others. They are brown and look similar. It seems like I should get more eggs if they were all laying. Anyway... I am really sad about my chickens dying and want 3 - 5 more pullets. I don't know if I should go buy them as pullets or chicks, or if I should get an incubator and hatch some out myself. I know that 9 out of 10 of my eggs are fertilized, so I know I could have a good success rate if I hatched them out myself. Which of the ways would cause the most and least amout of trouble with my existing flock? I don't want to upset my current chickens too much. Will they be aggressive to new pullets? Any advice?
