    Hey there all, I've recently started a project about Incubating & Hatching Eggs.

    I'm in 4-h (yes im the little brother)

    I need at least 6 ideas of stuff i can go into detail about

    These are two i already have:
    Feeding & Watering Your Chicks
    Temperature

    please comment below what i should put on and with my poster! Thanks :)

    Def agree with humidity (and air cell development since they are directly related), egg turning, pipping (internal and external) and zipping. That would walk a person through the whole incubation process. Or you could group zipping with pipping and do a brooder headline with how a brooder should be set up.

    Fertile eggs, storing eggs before incubation, temperature during incubation, humidity during incubation, turning eggs, stages of development (in what order do body parts form and such), turning, stages of hatch (internal pip, external pip, absorbing the yolk, drying up blood vessels, zip), candling, and maybe brooder set-up. Select your favorite six. My favorites would be fertile eggs, temperature, humidity, stages of development, turning, and stages of hatch but you’re the one going into detail. Choose whichever you wish.

    Good luck!
