    How long is the incubation time? do you hatch the exact same way as a chicken, or a duck?

    usually takes 21 to 28 days to hatch depending on what they are incubated in like an incubator or by a hen

    what kind of incubator are you using you can let the hen do it do if she is trying to sit on them you wont have to touch them she will take care of it all until they hatch then you will have to feed them if you are using the incubator and it doenst have an automatic egg turner you will have to hand turn them until 3 days before they hatch
