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

A hen’s egg is about 60% albumin (white), 29% yolk & 11% shell. Egg yolk is about 30% fat, 20% protein & 50% water.

Whilst ducks lay most of their eggs in the early hours of the morning, geese lay at irregular times throughout the day.

There is a law I seem to have discovered. The more valuable your hatching eggs, the more likely there will be a power failure….

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

#pktips The optimal hatching temperature for all poultry is around 0.3 to 0.5°C lower than the incubation temperature.

My girls stop laying when they moult, most do. Eggs are full of protein & this is needed for new feathers.
