Hi all.. I'm new here. I have no chickens --yet, but I have a question... I keep finding eggs all over my back yard. In the woodpile and in my flower beds... Once I even scouted one out in my strawberry and rhubarb garden.. I do like to make strawberry rhubarb pie :) I think the eggs are coming from my neighbor's chickens.. cause he has no coop and lets them run loose. My question is, can I incubate some of these eggs to get some chickens... or would it be better to get a chicken to sit on the eggs?

It would all depend of your neighbor has a rooster. If so then sure why not, collect the eggs for about a week and put them in the incubator :) You should be able to tell if their fertile by a week in the bator.

Hi eggbreaker,

You're in CS too? Small world!!! I do keep finding eggs in my yard. There's this guy next door that has chickens but no coop so his chickens roam... Do you let your chickens run free also?

Does your neighbor have a rooster?
yes he has a cock, cause I hear it crowing every morning... wakes me up before my alarm even goes off. I'm guessing then that means the eggs could be fertile and I can likely hatch chicks from them?

Hi! As long as he has a rooster why not try to hatch the eggs. Great way to start having chickens.
