I have music on 24/7 where the eggs are incubating. Good? Bad? No difference?
Unless you have it so loud its vibrating things its probly good or indifferent
I would say no difference. My eggs are incubated with all sorts of noises. Barking dogs.. TV.. Arguing children.. Us yelling at the dogs
I haven't seen a difference between chicks subjected to these sounds, and chicks not subjected to these sounds.
I would say music would help acclimate chicks to noises ONCE they've hatched. They'd be less likely to jump out in fear if they heard a bump in the night
I have done exhaustive studies on music and chickens - it seems that they will hatch faster of played rock and roll, slower if played country and never get out of there shell with opera.
Sorry, I am kidding. I have a late meeting at work but would rather be home with my 14 day incubated eggs.
What in the world have I become?
I have heard hens lay better when played Bluegrass. Tried it. No change noted other than my ears bleeding when I collected eggs.
They say kids do better on tests after listening to classical..maybe chicks hatch better too.
