than one that was hatched in an incubator. i had chicks in the brooder hatched from a bator and ive had chicks hatched by a broodie hen. in my opinion i find that a broody raised chick is able to survive alot better then a bator chick. is it there mom that teaches a broody chick to be this way by watching her, i dont know. but to me it just seems broody raised chicks are much more adept to being able to survive outside compared to bator chicks.
