Hi everyone, I've been reading all the threads here, and when we have a place with more space, I'd definitely like to hatch out some eggs in the future! All in all, what is the preferred method of hatching, using a 'bator or sticking eggs under a broody hen? I can see significant advantages to both methods & it's really neat to see all the various outcomes the users here have had. I just can't see myself investing in an incubator and then deciding, nah, not for me, don't wanna do the whole chicks thing after all. I'm thinking that maybe next year, if I get a broody hen and we have the space/time to try our hand at raising some little chicks, I might just pick up some eggs and stick them under the hen and see how it goes. I think there are a couple of feed stores here in the Sacramento area where you can buy fertile eggs. Which method provides a better hatch rate, should I find myself in a situation to be able to hatch out some eggs next spring? Thanks in advance for the thoughts and opinions of the BYC egg-sperts!
