Sometimes hens will get to be bullies and will start attacking the other hens or just one lowly hen. If you can figure out who the bully is, sometimes separating them for a few weeks can upset the pecking order enough that the bully comes back demoted. If not, they make things called Pin-less Peepers that you can put on the bird who is being the bully and it stops them from pecking. Or you can cull the bully before the rest of the flock decides to take it up too.

My friend gifted my girls with an incubator.

I am reading the directions and it says to turn to page xxx to determine if your eggs are fertilized or not. Okay, turn there and the directions tell me that fertilized eggs are laid by a hen housed with a cock and un-fertilized are the ones you eat.

Mmkay!

I have roosters, 4 of them actually but they are all pretty young. Is there a way to tell if an egg is fertilized or not?

Better question.... what would a Banty Polish x standard Easter Egger chicken look like?

Yeah tell me about it....

This incubator was obviously not made in the US. According to the directions the egg turner is to "keep egg free from dirt". Dirt? There's no dirt IN an incubator!

It was probably made in China. The person that wrote the instructions did not know anything about chickens. Then the instructions were most likely translated by somebody that couldn't speak English very well. Etc. Etc.......

Hopefully the incubator works anyway.

I think you can google for the exact amount of days to wait (I don't have an incubator and don't know) but candling is how you can tell if the egg is viable. Either pull it from the incubator after "x" days, or from under the hen, and give it a look see.
I've candled with a flashlight in a dark room and it can work. I can't remember where, but there are charts online to tell you what to look for at which specific amount of time.
At any rate, whenever I've had questions on eggs left in the nest after the hen takes the hatched chicks off, I've given them a gentle shake. The bad ones usually slosh and the developed ones will thud slightly.
(Oh my gosh... that sounds terrible, but it works after the eggs have been cooking for a while.)

Ahead of time? Before you put them in the incubator/under the hen?.... I don't know on that one other than do you see the little guys being "active?"

Bany Polish X EE? I'm guessing cute as all get up!
Or, so ugly it has to be cute.

Well, here's a pic of Jake, my Churkey (the turkey who thinks he's a chicken) with a few of his "flock." I will have to get some better photos now that I know there's a whole thread for chicken-pics!

Well, it's a weird story about Jake. I had a Royal Palm tom and a Bourbon Red hen... I'm thinking our hen had a little something going on the side with one of the wild toms that would come up into the pasture, because Jake CERTAINLY doesn't look like either of his "parents!"
Sadly, our hen was killed while on her nest, and I took her 4 eggs and put them under one of our broody hens...Jake was the only one who hatched. That little red hen raised him as if he were her very own, however, Jake is now just a little species confused.
I love him though!

Well, tell Jake he is in good company!
All of my turkey eggs are brooded and raised by my chicken mums.
(It's probably why they always survive poult-hood... my girls are smart, unlike turkey mums.)
My grown turkeys scratch and act just like chickens too and love to "help" me around the barnyard.
