Bug Bomb Poisoning? **UPDATE** HATCH TIME :)

Discussion in 'Incubating & Hatching Eggs' started by lowcountrypoultry, Sep 30, 2008.

  1. Okay I have some eggs in my incubator that I started on the 22nd and there in my dads shed. Well my dad put a bug bomb off in there and my incubator is in there!

    Will this harm the unhatched chicks?!

    Thanks

    If its a still air incubator, they should be fine. Might worry about a forced air sucking in the fumes.

    Still air or fan? And it might not matter. Birds are very sensitive to airborne toxins. If still air you've a better chance, but wow, no guarantees. Sorry. Did he close it up for hours?
     
  4. Okay wella few days ago my dad put a bug bomb off in his inclosed shed, I was FOR SURE in doubt that none would hatch nowing it was a fan incubator...

    Then a few more days later my brother unplugged the turner and I didnt notice it was until the night before the hatch!!

    After all this my hopes were gone..

    But then I went over there today and I had 35 out of 42 piped. I was in pure aww. No one has hatched yet, but when they do I will update [​IMG]

    Good luck, poor chicks might have to join a support group for all they been through. Hey, a new breed, bowlegged retards.

    Really, I hope your chicks turn out fine, and best of luck!!!
