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 environment for continuing embryonic development and

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

Impact of Hairline Cracked Eggs on Hatchability and Chick Performance

In general, good quality eggs are selected and placed for incubation. This means that only clean eggs with shell intact should be placed on the setter trays. Dirty or floor eggs and eggs with visible cracks are removed and not placed. Eggs with hairline cracks might often not be recognized and will, consequently, be placed
