why does it take less time for eggs to hatch through artificial incubation than naturally?

yeah , i would agree with that , the incubator heat is more concentrated and constant . the hen would have to get up and eat and stuff.i wonder which is the best method or does it make any difference.

I would imagine it's a more constant heat in the incubator. A hen will get up every so often, walk about and go back and sit on her eggs. Granted, they don't have time to get completely cold but the constant heat is broken. That's the only reason I can see. :-)

it take less time for hatching eggs in artificial method because we are doing it when the egg hatches itsself it dont have enough strength to it and so it takes more time.

Because that is how it was created to do so and make many eggs at once.
