    Do you prefer letting your hen hatch eggs or incubating eggs?

    I prefer the natural way and letting the hen hatch her own egg

    I love having my Broody Hens hatch the Chicks.....No work for me at all, other than feeding her and then her and the Chicks.....I have two with Chicks right now and hatching Duck eggs in my incubator.....Broody is the best way!


    Cheers!

    I love my broody Buff O hens to do the work for me but when a neighbor gives you a dozen eggs and nobody is broody, into the incubator they go!

    I am one of those odd balls that hate having broodies and love incubating my eggs. I think we are the minority, but we are out there....lol
