Can These Broiler Eggs Be Hatched? by trychris: 4:05pm On Jun 09
So, my broiler hens have been laying eggs for sometime now but they are smaller in sizes when compared with layers'.

With the high rising cost of eggs, they have been a good substitute in this our never-smiling economy.

But looking at the sizes, I would like to know if it's possible to hatch them because they are being fertilized by the male ones.

Boilers do not incubate eggs. What you should do is look for native hen that's already laying eggs then swap the eggs and replace with that of the boilers (should be done b4 the hen starts incubating the eggs). Within 21 days of incubating u will have your day old chick. Just be sure that there's a male chick servicing the boilers else the eggs won't hatch
I hope that helps

Typo. How old are the birds. Did they mate?If they have not mated there would be no hatching

Dude you are quoting the wrong guy here, i am not the op, though I actually pointed it out to you that there's I couldn't read a meaning to your message earlier..... meanwhile, for your question, the op specifically stated that the male broilers have been topping the females actually

The eggs should be hatchable if you get a cooperative mother to incubate or you have a mechanical incubator.

Yes, initially one or two were double yolk which were discovered after they were cracked but is there any other way to detect it?

The size doesn't matter just do the swapping of eggs. It will definitely hatch

Not at all, but condition can be corrected through feeding program, by feeding them whole grains and lots of veggies, cut down on the intake of protein and supply with a lesser protein contained feed

Is there a place to hatch or an hatchery along Agbara in Lagos?
Re: Can These Broiler Eggs Be Hatched? by trychris: 5:16pm On Jun 20
So, I finally got a guy who has a hatchery, gave him 13 fertilized eggs on Friday.
He said it would take between 21 and 22 days.
