    I'm just wondering if anyone uses an essential oil disinfectant for their incubator and/or hatching eggs? Or at least a natural disinfectant?

    Seems so many want organic chicks it hardly seems right to be using chemicals to clean their hatching environment.

    I don't see why you couldn't use vinegar.
