Hi, we are able to get 2 more chicks and kinda wanted to hatch them. Can you hatch only 2 eggs with a broody or do you have to hatch more? And is it hard to make your hen go broody?

You can't make a hen go broody. And nk, you can do just 2 eggs, but not every hen that goes broody will sit on just 2 and with just 2, odds increase that one or none will be all that hatch
