    I’m just curious, has anyone decided that incubating and hatching your own eggs is too stressful and quit doing it because of that?

    No, but I have refrained at certain times because I have too much on my plate. But really to each their own, if it doesn't make you happy, don't do it.

    Not becAuse it is too stressful but because I don't have anyone that needs chicks. I love hatching but hate maintaining two flocks until they can be integrated so only hatch when I have someone that wants the babies.
