    Greetings to all.. firstly forgive me for my english. I join this forum to get additional info for my hobby. I'm still new and learning. i got around 30 chicken and started with a rooster and a hen. I started my hobby using 'tradistional method' where hen lays eggs and hatch and bring her baby for food by scrath on the ground etc...Now it become over 30 of them and i would like to 'modernize' my method maybe start to use incubator and brooder system.

    I maybe not asking questions now but i would like firstly to look around in this forum for info. It is great to have forum like this.

    Thank you admin for letting me join this forum

    Welcome to BYC!!

    Congrats on growing your flock the traditional method way! Lots of people hatch their flocks. This IS the best way to do it if you can. And hatching is fun too. Gotta love those broody momma's and babies!

    Great to have you aboard BYC and enjoy all your poultry adventures in life!

    [​IMG] even in this day and age there are many people that prefer to have broody hens raise chicks. It's much easier than using an incubator. You could buy fertile eggs from other breeds you are interested in and replace a broody hen's own eggs with the new ones.

    If you plan to raise a large number of chicks, incubators are probably the best choice.

    Welcome to BYC - hen raised chicks makes the operation far easier for me.
