Adjusting Ventilation! Putting Science into Practice

Reducing ventilation at the start of incubation generally avoids the inlet of cold air. Because moisture is trapped in the closed incubator, the humidifier cold spot is also absent. Consequently closing the valves during the first days improves temperature homogeneity and heat transfer to the eggs, producing a good, uniform

Managing Incubation Temperature to Combat Increased Early Mortality

As a breeder flock ages, the number of ‘clear’ (infertile) eggs increases as a result of decreased fertility and increased early mortality. Consequently, with higher numbers of clear eggs, a higher proportion of the heat produced by developing embryos in the fertile eggs is absorbed by the ‘cold’ clear eggs
