    Well I think it is more fun, less work AND cuter! But that is just me.

    Great pic BTW.

    I wish I could have a rooster so I can hatch my own chicks! This incubating is fun but very stressful.

    Quote:I'm with you. Question When a hen gets broody how many eggs does she typically hatch. I use to have woodduck houses & the norm was 15.
