Excerpt from Poultry-Keeping and How to Make It Pay As so much is heard about incubators in these days, one might well suppose that the services of the broody hen have been almost entirely dispensed with. As a matter of fact, the work of hatching on large poultry farms is about equally divided between hens and incubators. Highly useful, and indeed indispensable, as incubators are where poultry rear ing is carried on to any material extent, the sitting hen cannot be beaten where the rearing of prize and other valuable stock has to be done in winter and early spring. The chickens are stronger and healthier, for the natural heat and comfort derived from the hen is better for them in every way than artificial heat and nursing.
