Water intake of chickens increases with temperature and when they are in lay. It's essential to provide fresh water.

#pktips When chicks start to hatch – Leave the lid on the incubator so you don’t alter the humidity! Chicks will be fine for 24 hrs

#pktips Don’t forget to position incubators away from windows where sunlight might interfere with correct temperature regulation.

A high incubation temperature is more damaging than a low one. 39.5 deg C will kill an embryo / chick ☹

#pktips It’s better to let eggs cool (lid off) in a power-cut as metabolism & growth slows. Keeping eggs warm causes abnormal development
