My momma, dad, and I plan to move soon(like in the next few years). I will always live with my momma because I love her and she helps me in tough situations. Anyway, when we move, we plan on getting some chickens so that we can have our own farm fresh eggs. Not sure about a rooster though, they can be aggressive. So I figured that if I want chicks, I might as well get fertile eggs and have them hatch after a few weeks. But I am not sure which way to go about it. I could buy an incubator, turn them every day, build a brooder(where the chicks will be when they hatch) etc. but it would be a lot of work. And I plan on being a doctor when I get older. On the other hand, I could wait until 1 or more of the hens becomes broody and let her incubate the eggs naturally. I personally would rather have a broody hen do the work for me. But how would I know if the hen is broody? Would pecking on my hand as I collect eggs be a sign that the hen is broody and I should get fertile eggs for her after I get the infertile eggs out of the nest?
