Uneven temperatures in incubators
Does egg location in the
incubator affect a chick's time of hatch and hatchability? In
still air incubators, you'll find relatively wide temperature
variations throughout the incubator, but even our top of the line Brinsea
Octagon 20 Advance Incubator shows differences in hatch
rate related to egg location in the tray. The picture to the
right is the summary of my results from two hatches, suggesting that
eggs in the center are less likely to hatch than those around the
edges, and my notes show that central eggs also tend to hatch later.
Our chicken waterer takes the guesswork out of POOP-free water.
