    No I have not heard of it before. Is it some kind of egg wash to sanitise the eggs befire incubation?

    No it is an all natural ingredient with folic acid that is supposed to help hatch rate and make more healthy chicks.

    I read a study where eggs dipped in a vitamin C solution before incubation increased the hatch rate and vigor of the chicks. It only makes sense that folic acid would also be helpful. I'd love to know what else is in this product, and what the strength/dilution is.

    I wonder if you could put a few infants vitamin drops (polyvisol) in distilled water and mist the hatching eggs and it soak into the shell to nourish the chick even more? Just a "frankenstien" thought...any ideas if this would work?
