Hi,

welcome-byc.gif



It depends on if I have a hen that's broody, If I do, then I would let her set unless I had reasons not too.

I love seeing baby chicks along side their mother.

(And it saves me some work too

If your hen is broody, she will do a much better job than an incubator. She will go broody when she has a large enough clutch of eggs in her preferred nest. However, some breeds of chickens are non-setters (leghorns, and many other egg producing breeds). Bantam hens are usually excellent setters, and do a great job of raisnig chicks. Good luck!
