How to Help Hatch a Chick

It is our opinion that nature knows best.

In our experience at Lally Broch Farm, allowing the hens to incubate and hatch their eggs gives us a better hatch rate and usually one that requires no assistance from us. (I'm not against using an incubator, we just have not had as good results from them.) Sometimes, interference is necessary and can be life saving. When it's a choice between certain death by suffocation or a slim chance at life, we make that call on a case by case basis and hope that we make the right one.

So, how can you give your chick the best chance at survival? We have some tips for you and a video of it being done at Lally Broch Farm.
