Question Would there be interest in hatching chicken eggs?


This would be a winter hatch! Something fun to keep ya busy. Then, they will be laying come spring.
The breeds of the hens are
rsl(red sexlink)
star-bsl(black sexlink)
br(Plymouth barred rock)
light brahma
cochin-blk and blue
I think that's it, lol?

All will have at least some leg and foot feathering from the fathers side.

I'm thinking the cost couldn't be more than $10 for sure. I will check for an accurate price when it's time. This would be 6 eggs.

I have a wonderfully tempered standard blk cochin roo over them.

A homemade incubator runs under $20 and I'd be happy to provide a link to excelent instructions. It's super easy.

This is one of the chicks I hatched last month.
