    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.

    Your rooster is beautiful! And that hen in the forefront of the 3rd picture looks like she is lathered up with soap suds. So cute. Good luck with hatching your own eggs now :)

    If you're asking what your various chicks WILL be, what the result will be of these various match-ups, the answer is they will be chickens and likely very good laying chickens.

    They will be mixes, not any breed. You'll enjoy them and that's what counts.

    They will be the classic breed........Barnyard mix!

    I agree the hens you hatch should be good layers. What do you plan to do with the (up to a dozen) roosters you hatch?
