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

Optimal Weight Loss Profiling during Incubation

Good hatchability is dependent on meeting all crucial incubation parameters. One of these important parameters is weight loss. Eggs should lose 11-13 per cent of initial weight during the first 18 days of incubation. Weight loss in hatching eggs is caused by the continuous evaporation of water from the eggs - and inseparably linked to
