    Hi....Are you going to use an incubator or see if the hen goes broody?

    Ask @WVduckchick....She is a great help....Or also @Ravynfallen.......She is fantastic too!


    Cheers!

    I did a write up on my blog last year mostly for my own *dont forget this stuff* needs but I think it's fairly comprehensive. (Link in signature! or here if you're on a mobile device!)

    You'll have to pick out an incubator then. There is a ton of information posted here (particularly the Sally Sunshine sticky) and plenty of people to help.

    What's your budget? You'll need a brooder set up, too, but that can come a bit closer to the hatch date(s).
