    Funny thing is she's a cornish broiler x unknown bantam chicken mix. She must have gotten the banty genes because she's hatched out 11 guineas, 2 turkeys, 2 ducklings, and 2 of her own chicks so far this year. I was considering a hovabator earlier this year but I doubt it could ever match the easy of use and 95%+ hatch rate I'm getting from this chicken right now- only down side is that she'll try to sit on as many eggs as she can fit under her (20+ earlier this year) so I have to remove some from time to time.
