    I want to see if the Trader Joe's closest to me sells hatch-able eggs but was wondering if I could get a broody hen to hatch them out. Has anyone tried this yet or do people just use an incubater?

    I havnt hatched with a broody hen yet but my guess Is if you let them warm up to room temp the broody could care less what type of eggs she is setting

    I figured something like that.... thanks for your input... I figured I would not like to sit on an ice cube and figured my hen would not be to happy either...lol room temp sounds about right to start.
