This might sound stupid, but I don't know the answer. Ok, there seems to be a lot of things to do to hatch eggs. Why not let the hen sit on the eggs and let her hatch them and keep them warm and teach her babies how to forrage and so on? Is there a reason so many people are into hatching the eggs? It seems like so much work and heartache. If the mother hen does this, are she and the babies supposed to be in a cage by themselves? Thanks for educating me.
