It's not that easy for me. Mine almost never hatch in an incubator. I wasted over 200 eggs last time I tried. So now it's broody hens or nothing. :(

LOL I am just the opposite. I give my EE eggs to my MFC girls to hatch and raise and I take all their eggs and hatch in an incubator and raise in a brooder. Today I have hatched out 11 MFC babies, 7 Mottleds, some ducks and blue wheaten Ameraucanas. Meanwhile, the MFC hens are happy with their EE chicks.

It's not the cochin eggs I can't hatch in an incubator, it's my call duck eggs I need a broody hen for. All my cochin eggs go in my incubators.

Stephanie. I hatched like 3 out of 5-6 Call eggs in my Brinsea Mini Advanced. Haven't ever let my broodies hatch 'good' eggs.

LOL That is what I am saying. I don't let my broodies hatch "good" eggs. Though I did let my GLW hatch out ducklings last year, I seldom hatch duck eggs under a broody.

I  hear you Stephanie I can't hatch call ducks in the incubator either. I let the cochins or the ducks do it.

My ducks won't sit the whole time, they are lousy broodies. That's why I have extra cochin hens. :)
