Seems many of my eggs are hatching a day or two early since its been so hot in Oklahoma
Yes, it can make eggs hatch earlier, but it can also cause problems with the chicks. So, it's not a good idea to do it intentionally. If it's due to weather and not having a cooler place to put an incubator, probably not a lot you can do about it. It's been a beastly hot summer everywhere east of the Rockies from what I keep reading and hearing. It's now officially the hottest summer on record here in SE Michigan per the National Weather Service, and that is coming off the warmest spring period on record.
Quote:Agreed, within reason. If egg temperatures rise too high for extended periods of time, you're likely to wind up with a batch of duds.
