In the Brooder
- Mar 18, 2017
I have an incubator with 18 eggs and they are starting to hatch today. We decided to incubate the eggs ourselves so that our hens would continue to lay eggs. As it happens, one of our hens (who ironically is the mother of the eggs we are incubating), went broody two days ago. Instead of isolating the chicks from the flock that they came from, can we put the newly hatched chicks under the broody hen? Will she accept them or kill them?
