We have raised chicken for years and have always collected all the eggs and hatched most. This year, with 12 bantams as our only chickens, we thought it would be fun to let them hatch their own babies. Well we are learning a lot about what goes on in the hen house… First of all there seems to be a sense of sharing going around. We have 7 hens on eggs. Two of the egg holes have two hens in each and they seem to rotate from nest to nest. Doesn’t seem to matter which hole they sit in after they stretch and get some food they jut go to any hole with eggs and sit there.
