    The best broody hatch I see in my records is @valleychicks with a 77% broody hatch rate.

    Anyone have a better broody hatch rate?

    ronott1, I thought you said Chickee had 100%. Was Chickee using a broody?

    Sorry, chickee had 100 percent for her incubator but 0 for broodie--something like a 50% hatch rate total.

    I had to verify.
