If you are small-scale and flexible, then the broody hen is the perfect choice for you. It will reduce your work load considerably and provide you with a reasonable number of healthy chicks with well-instructed foraging and bathing behaviors. If you are larger-scale and working on a large project or within a strict time-frame, then an incubator is an excellent choice and you can begin building trust as you rear the chicks yourself.
