incubation means exactly what it sounds like --- you incubate your
chicken eggs without adding any water to the wells of the
incubator. The goal is to get your eggs to lose 13% of their
weight by day 18 so that the chicks will have large enough air pockets
to hatch correctly. Although this technique flies in the face of
the instructions that come with most incubators, many home hatchers
swear by dry incubation and say they get better results that way.
Our chicken waterer keeps your chicks healthy once they pop out of the shell.
