Best Answer...

Answer:

Hi,

Chicken eggs take 21 days to incubate.

Your newly hatched chicks are best fed from trays when they first hatch to make sure they find the feed and eat. In a few days you can replace them with the hoppers you have. You will need shaving to as bedding.You will also need a thermometer to make sure your brooding temperature is correct.

If all the eggs are coming from the same place, they could be related. By keeping a young male, there is a possible case of inbreeding here. So you might think of buying another male to breed from your birds.

The size of your brooder (5 x 4ft) is large enough to keep these chicks for about 6 weeks, and by that time will not need must brooding after this time, so you have this right too.

As for how many chicks will hatch will depend on how many are fertile,how your incubation goes. If you incubate them correctly and most eggs are fertile then expect somewhere between 80-100% of all fertile eggs to hatch.Good luck.
