Hello people and animals! How to INSTALL eggs in an incubator: a) Selection of eggs for bookmarking and pre-storage at throughout the set of eggs for a bookmark b) Gradual heating of the accumulated bookmark at room temperature before being placed in the incubator c) Incubation period d) The appearance of chicks from the shell and their careful movement out of the incubator Before laying it is worth making high-quality selection of eggs. The larger the egg, the longer it will be incubated period. Attention in no case be put in the incubator cold eggs. In order for as many chicks to hatch as strong and healthy: the surface of the eggs should not have some growths, uneven unevenness, chips, cracks. Should not there can also be a lot of dirt, however, it is also impossible to wash eggs intended for hatching. Try to choose medium sized eggs for your incubator. The larger the egg, the more likely the death of the embryo. If you lay small eggs, then small birds will grow from them, the females of which will later carry eggs of small sizes. And do not forget that in herds small individuals most often attacked by other birds. To breed new offspring, try to wipe eggs from older birds, then the brood will not have pathologies in development. Chicken good weight 50-53 grams. Turkey 70 Duck 70 Goose 120 Quail 10-15 If you want the chicks to grow as close to natural conditions as possible, try to choose between the end of February and the beginning of May for laying in the incubator. It is highly undesirable to select eggs for laying an incubator at home during the summer months. Try to bookmark the incubator in the afternoon, at about 6 pm. In this case, the first chicks at the end of the term will crawl out from the shell in the morning, and the rest - throughout the day. It is impossible: drafts, temperature jumps of 2-3 degrees. Eggs to be laid in incubation equipment, they are stored in a slightly cool place for no more than 10 days at a relative humidity of the surrounding air not exceeding 70-80%. However, novice poultry farmers make a fatal mistake when they put eggs into the machine, without first preparing them gradually for elevated temperature conditions in the incubator. Eggs, getting into a warm environment, are covered with condensate - this moisture clogs the microscopic pores in the egg shell, as a result, oxygen does not enter the shell, and the embryo is killed by suffocation. Before laying eggs, they should be kept for eight to ten hours in a well-ventilated room at a stable room temperature, avoiding drafts. Medium-sized and small eggs (for example, like quails or chickens, turkeys) are laid exclusively in an upright position.
