Yes that is breeding. So yes I breed chickens. We mostly use our hens for eggs, but we do have a couple roosters. We let our chickens free range and unless we pen up the roosters, they will do their business. We collect the eggs everyday so even though they are fertile, they won't hatch because they don't get incubated. Most of the time, if we get a hen that wants to sit, we will put a day or two's eggs under her and let her hatch them off. Right now though, we have enough hens and (more than enough) roosters, so we don't intend to let them sit.
We have 5 acres in the country so we have to contend with coyotes and hawks. We lose chickens during the day to the hawks since we let them roam around and catch bugs. That makes for better tasting eggs. Not all the chickens go back into the coup at night to be shut up and protected from the coyotes. In fact, we just lost one the other night.
