    I think what you do with the birds depends on why you are hatching eggs. Are you asking what you need to do to hatch eggs and raise chicks, or how to get rid of the chicks that hatch?

    I like to hatch eggs with a broody because I don't have to do anything. They take care of the hatching and raising babies all by themselves!
