Today we are going to talk about selecting the right broody hen and getting an incubator setup properly, as well as how to care for your eggs up to the day you set them.
Whether it’s the hen won’t leave the nest or you get growled at every time you walk by, some sign will present that you have a broody hen on your hands. The key to success with a broody is that you make sure she is in it for the long haul. As some of you may remember, I had a very successful broody hatch in January, but an epic failure in February because my broody decided not only was she done, but she wanted the eggs destroyed.
Get your broody hen prepared. Get your incubator situated, Prepare your eggs.
