    I wanted to know if a moderate amount of constant noise in the same room as an incubator will have harmful effects on the chicks inside? Cause while im working the kinks out of my new homemade incubator, my biology teacher is letting me incubate my eggs in his school incubator( which is very expensive and high-tech), He's gonna have classes throughout the day in his room, so is that bad?

    IMO I dont think it will cause any harm, but then again ive never really thought about it !! The TV in my incubator room is on a lot and ive never had any problems !! Now if the noise in the room causes a constant vibration then I would wonder. Think they are safe !! Good luck and hope you have a great hatch !!

    Unless there are lots of vibrations I would say it should be fine ,
    You could always ask him to play light classical music for the eggs to help combat there stress over the other noises
