    I hatch all year round and don't have any problems. I've just hatched out three chicks (under a broody), three ducklings yesterday, and have another ten chicks due to hatch on Friday. If you're breeding for size then very early in the year seems to be the best time for that, like January/February, as those chicks always seem to end up bigger as adults, but if you're just worried about how the chicks will get on in the autumn and winter, they'll most likely be fine.
