My mentor has told me it's almost impossible to 'bator hatch the eggs & he has 30 years experience. Told me that's why he has silkies, as they are wonderful broodies for eggs.
What has been your experience? (BTW...my hens lay on the henhouse tin roof or on the chicken wire top. No where is anyone making a nest. It seems they drop'em wherever.)
I thank you all for any suggestions! -Priscilla
