Incubation Times in the Modern Hatchery

The chicken embryo generally needs 21 days (504 h) to complete incubation, including the drying of down (Etches, 1996). In practice however, incubation periods vary considerably, as observed by Laughlin (2007) in large scale field surveys, which recorded pulling times from the setting of eggs of 500 up to 526 hours .This variation can partly

Hatcher Basket Hygiene for a Clean Start

The hygiene status of the environment into which chicks are hatched has a direct impact on day-old-chick quality and first week mortality.
