Anyone tried hatching their own eggs?

Recommended Posts

Hello and welcome to the forum.


There is lots of advice in the stickies at the top of each section.


Whilst hatching and rearing your own chicks is thrilling and exciting, it is something not to be undertaken lightly.


Can I recommend that you read **this article ** very thoroughly.


You have to invest in some equipment such as an incubator, a brooder, chick feeder and drinker and have a clear idea of what you will do with the cockerels before you embark upon hatching. Unfortunately more cockerels than hens hatch successfully.


We have a policy on this forum of not rehoming cockerels that have resulted from home hatching experiments so would not be able to help you out if you were unlucky enough to hatch mostly boys.
