    Simple, straightforward advice giving the reason behind each piece. It is easier to remember advice when you know why should or should not do something. Very helpful.

    Nice to see positive action and compassion to what some may consider a "hopeless" case. This may encourage others to try harder when they may have otherwise given up. I know it has educated me. Good on you mate. 👍

    Review by 'Aussie-Chookmum' in article 'Nest Boxes; why do we make a sitting hens job so difficult?'

    My flock has no rooster and I am unlikely to ever have a hen incubate eggs. That doesn't mean I am not curious about the subject, especially after reading various hatch-a-long threads and discovering that incubator success rate is a lot lower than I'd realized. Thank you for this article...
