Hatching Eggs for Newbies

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hi! 

I have brooded chicks before but never hatched any eggs.

Can I handmake an Incubator and what tempature do the eggs need?

Chicken Math is closing in on me. Again.

21 chickens. 3 horses. 2 dogs. 1 cat.

I love to jump horses and kick up dirt 'round the cans!

Please read about my chick Owlet in her blog!

I love caring for special needs chickens and am considering starting a Special Needs Chicken Rescue.

You can make your own bator. there are manay threads and threads with many DIY bator ideas. Just search for DIY incubators or home made incubators in the site's search bar and you should find what you need for ideas. IF you make a still air incubator temps need to be 101-102 taken near the tops of the eggs, if you add a fan for circulated air 99.5 is the recommendation.

Hmmmm. Sorry, I am having a very bad bout of Chicken Math at the moment.

Can you hatch refrigerated eggs?
