    If one of the bantum langshans is broody then you can leave the eggs under them, but otherwise you will need to collect the eggs and use an incubator.

    Basiclly it's the same thing with the ducks. If one of the hens is broody, I would go with the natural way.

    Both ways of hatching eggs will have risks of failure, and degrees of success.
