Hatching Skills – Part 2 During incubation

1. Put in the eggs

After the machine test well, put the prepared eggs into the incubator in an orderly manner and close the door.

2. What to do during incubation?

After starting incubation, the temperature and humidity of the incubator should be observed frequently, and the water supply should be added every day to prevent the machine from being short of water. After a long time, you will know how much water to add at what time of day. You can also add water to the machine through an external automatic water supply device inside the machine. (Maintain the height of the water to submerge the water level test device).

3. Time required for incubation

The temperature of all eggs in the early stage of incubation must be well controlled. Different types of eggs and different incubation periods have different temperature requirements. Especially when the temperature difference between inside and outside is large, do not take them out to light eggs. Not to open the door unless there are special circumstances. The temperature imbalance in the early stage is very serious. It is easy to cause the chick to have slow yolk absorption and increase the chance of deformity.

4. Light the eggs around the seventh day

On the seventh day of incubation, the darker the environment, the better; the fertilized eggs that can see clear blood-shots are developing. while the eggs that are not fertilized are transparent. When checking out infertile eggs and dead sperm eggs, take them out, otherwise these eggs will deteriorate under the action of high temperature and affect the development of other eggs. If you encounter a hatching egg that is temporarily indistinguishable, you can mark it. After a few days, you can take a separate egg lighting. If there is no change. It will be eliminated directly. When the hatching reaches 11-12 days, the second egg lighting Is carried out. The purpose of this egg lighting Is still to check the development of the eggs and detect the stopped eggs in time.

5. The test is coming – over-temperature

When hatching for more than 10 days, the eggs will generate heat due to their own development. A large number of hatching eggs will cause the temperature to rise by 1-2 degrees. If the high temperature continues at this time, the eggs will die. Pay attention to the over-temperature problem of the machine. When the machine is over- temperature, it will enter the intelligent cooling egg mode to dissipate heat inside the incubator.
