Egg Incubactor Hatching Guide

There is nothing more rewarding than hatching your own eggs and raising your own baby birds. Whether you’re incubating and hatching your own chickens, turkeys, hummingbirds, or ducks, the experience of cultivating and growing your chicks is incomparable. However, it takes experience to correctly hatch eggs, even if you have a high-quality incubator. In this article, we will be discussing the best tips on how to hatch eggs in an incubator. 

Setting your Eggs     

 

Most eggs hatch best if they are stored no more than 7 days before they are incubated. Let your eggs warm to room temperature before placing them into your incubator for the best hatching results. If you place your eggs into the warming incubator too soon it can cause moisture condensation in the eggshell which can lead to disease and reduce egg hatching.  

Humidity Control

Humidity control is vital to the importance of your egg hatching. Your humidity level should never fall below 25% or go above 60% between setting and three days prior to hatching. During the last three days of hatching, however, the humidity level should be increased between 70-80%. Nowadays, high-quality incubators have an automatic humidity adjuster so there is no need to worry about fixing the time yourself. 

Turning the Eggs

Most bird eggs need to be turned on an average of 2-3 times a day during the incubation period although some experts recommend 4-5 times. It is imperative to understand that during the final days of hatching that the embryo is moving into the hatching position, this means that the egg should not be moved during this time. High-quality egg turners will take care of the egg turning for you so you do have to do it by hand. 

The Temperature of the Egg Incubator

Egg incubation temperature is one of the most important factors in egg hatching. The temperature of your incubator is dependent on how many eggs you are trying to hatch because it will take longer for the temperature to stabilize. This could mean that your egg incubator may heat up and cool down quickly before it reaches its ideal temperature.

It has stripped me of most of my income," Risdahl said. "It has compounded the stress our family has been under due to a series of health scares over the last year and the resulting crippling expenses, but it also has reminded us of what is truly important: family and loved ones."

Though it is natural to experience stress on a daily basis, stress that is triggered too often can be a serious problem. Thankfully there are several natural ways you can reduce stress levels and ease your mind. 


Learning a new hobby helps you direct nervous energy into something creative or physical. Focusing your energy on something other than what stresses you will help you relax.
