How to hatch eggs using a brooding hen
I filmed this video in July. We put 6 eggs into a henhouse with a brooding hen and three weeks later 3 of them hatched. We also had 8 eggs in an incubator and when they hatched, we gave them to the same hen to look after. We put the expanded family into the quailhouse to keep vermin and other hens away from them.
