Hatch Out

  1. 1. Hatch out • Plan to remove chicks once a day, as every time incubator is opened, warm moist air escapes. Avoid chilling of wet chicks. • Some chicks may be late in hatching, so you can leave remaining un hatched eggs up to two days longer.
  2. 2. When Hatching Begins -- Day 21 • Set up a brooder box. • Get out feeder and waterer. • Place wood shavings or other suitable class "smaller" litter in the bottom of the brooder box. • Regulate the temperature around 95 degrees F.
  3. 3. • Provide water and feed for chicks after they are placed in the brooder box. Place marbles or rocks in the waterer to keep chicks from drowning. • Return hatched chicks to the Extension Office or take them to the farm at the agreed upon time.
  4. 4. After Hatch • Clean your incubator with a diluted bleach solution. • Allow to dry. • Wash and dry feeder and waterer. • Put incubator and other equipment away for next year. • Return evaluation.
  5. 5. • Dead Embryos Before hatching time. Eggs haven't been turned at least 3 times a day. • Lack of ventilation. • Incubator temperature set too high or too low. • Breeder flock having poor hatchability or fed inadequate ration.
  6. 6. • Eggs pipped but not hatched (Chick pecks hole through shell) Chicks dead in shells. Sticky chicks Shells sticking to chicks. Low average humidity. • Low average temperature. • Low humidity at hatching time. • Excessive high temperature for short period.
  7. 7. • Hatching too early With bloody navels. Temperature too high. • Delayed hatch Eggs not pipping until 21st day or later. Temperature too low. • Draggy hatch Some chicks hatch early, but hatch is slow in finishing. Temperature too high.
  8. 8. • Crippled chicks Abnormalities in development. • Poor nutrition of hens. • Incubator temperature too high.
