    to use an incubator or a broody hen? or are they about the same to hatch?
    and it is easy to hatch eggs under a broody?

  2. for people who dont have the time to fool with an incubator or who dont want to handle the stress of watching one.. a broody hen is best

    for insane people like me who has better luck with an incubator, hatching with one and not the broody hen is best

    for me it was harder to hatch with the broody because i didn't have the space/broody coop. if you have a broody coop then it s easy. its just when your having to build these makeshift temporary cage things in your coop that the chicks keep growing out of, thats when it get hard and frustrating.
