Hello, I am new to the forum, I adopted a free Rooster, now my eggs are fertile!! I made a home made incubator, and set 24 eggs 7 days ago. My original chickens I bought from TSC last spring, they have been great egg layers, but of the 12 I raised, I only have 4 of the original remaining due to Black Bears and Fisher Cats. I then adopted 6 Hens and a free Roo came with the hens. I don't know what breed the rooster is or the majority of the hens. Any input will help. I hope the eggs that I am hatching will end up to be good egg producers.
