      Artificial incubation and hand-rearing allow aviculturists to greatly increase the reproductive potential of breeding populations. When one clutch is pulled for artificial incubation, a second clutch will typically be laid, which can then be parent-reared or also pulled for artificial incubation, thereby doubling or tripling reproductive output....
