How easy is it to use a incubator
cheers
post #2 of 8


Dead easy - but to have high hatch rates can be a little more tricky based on some of the threads i've read. . Check out the incubator threads and you will have an idea of some of the challenges of using them. Maybe check out threads on using them and you will get some insight into the weird and wonderful world of incubators.

 

A broody momma is my first choice every time, but we are all different, so why not give it a bash?

 

Good luck

Just saw this link that Yorkshire coop was guiding another member to - it might help.

A lot of it depends on which incubator you are using. You have more expensive set em and forget em bators and you have your more tempormental LGs and everything in between. Incubation/hatching should come after research to understand humidity, how to control it, having accurate gauges, how and when to assist if you need to (if you are willing to), and the basics. There are tips for shipped eggs, tips for high altitude hatching and many more little things that you don't think about before starting a hatch.
