    Hi Gavin and welcome.

    I see from your BYC page that you are in the 7th grade and have 8 bantam Sebrights. Congratulations to you. It is a big responsibility taking care of chickens, I sometimes doubt whether I'm old enough to handle the task and I'm well beyond the 7th grade.

    You indicating you were having trouble getting your girls to "incubate". This may seem like a ridiculous question, but how many roosters do you have?

    You definitely need a rooster for your hens to produce eggs that can be "incubated." If you don't have a rooster, then you will need to wait for one of your hens to go broody and then purchase fertilized eggs which you can then place under her so that she can hatch them out. That process usually takes 21 days and there are many, many people here who can talk you through that experience.

    Good luck to you Gavin.

  8. Well it take all types to make a world go 'round! [​IMG] and Nanoo Nanoo!
