so some of my friends are hatching chicks in new different ways some hatched and some not her they are:

1-hatching with warm summer sand: I know this sound a bit weird but my friend hatched out 4 chicks in the summer using a cozy blanket and bearing them under the hot sand leaving some air for them hatching not sure how they survive the nights but worked

2- hatching with a non broody hen: this may sound crazy but its almost naturally hatching but some force and non force you get a some thing like a small pillow or a folded small blanket and tie it to a chicken (I prefer big meaty hens) and let the hen in a place by herself or if you may leave her with the hens (more safe by her self) and catch her everyday to turn the eggs that's it this also worked only put 3 eggs more might be a bad idea.

you could try these if you want I only did the non broody hen trick and hatched 2 chicks might do it again thanks for reading


these are real not joking around!

When I was little I tried hatching eggs in a compost pile but I didn't know much about hatching then so none hatched, they got way too wet. Now when I want just a few eggs hatched I stick them under one of my pigeon pairs cause they almost always want to hatch eggs. I haven't tried giving them chicken eggs yet but they are really good at hatching quail eggs.

nice to hear that hope you hatch the chicken eggs soon lots of people use pigeon as a broody hen for chicken eggs I did that to and hatched out some under giant pigeons maybe king breed 2 bantam eggs is the max to hatch 1 larger breed egg is the only you can put under them and compost wont work sand is dry and works better you can put compost under the eggs and sand on top of the compost (wet compost for humadity and dry sand over the compost)

This spring I will definitely try giving my pigeons a chicken egg to hatch, maybe even a duck egg if my ducks start laying.

duck eggs are too big they cant hatch ive tried and bad results they chill because of the pigeons smaller body you can try the methods I did in the thread they also work just as great as chicken eggs except or number 2 might work with chicken but better with duck for duck eggs

yes this is real and could hatch some eggs but the sand method wont work until summer you can try the non broody method might not work in winter all these methods were done in spring to late falls some farmers here don't believe this can be done because they never tried I don't want to make an argument or something but who ever say this is bad and a lie try for your self
