Hello everybody. I am new to the chicken world. We live in the mountains east of Albuquerque, NM. We have kind of impulsively decided to hatch our own chickens. We have a pretty nice coop (we are still working on it a little, but we have some time). My mom had chickens when she was young, so we are not totally in the dark, but we have no first hand experience. I have a friend with young chickens who are still yielding eggs not bigger than pingpog balls. We need some eggs to incubate seeing as that our first crop seems to be overcome by bacteria. I was wondering if these little eggs can hatch healthy chicks.
