PRE-INCUBATION MANAGEMENT

1. Collect the eggs as often as possible, it is best if it is collected as soon as the hen laid the eggs.  Remember, eggs should be naturally clean.

2. Place the eggs in a plastic egg tray that is clean and disinfected pointed side down.

3. Store in cool area, we recommend storing the eggs in a refrigerator.

 

Premature chick development can start to occur at temperatures as low as 23 to 25 degrees Celcius. This premature development and starting and stopping development can lead to embryo death.
