Upon Delivery or Arrival of Destination

We advise that the eggs be carefully UN-wrapped then placed  in a cool-humid storage area. Ideal storage conditions include a 55 to 68 degrees F. temperature and 75% relative humidity.

Allow cool eggs to warm slowly to room temperature before placing in the incubator. Abrupt warming from 55 degrees to 100 degrees causes moisture condensation on the egg shell that leads to disease and reduced hatches.


Store the eggs

with the small end pointed downward over night or 24 hrs.  To help the egg settle.


Hatchability

holds reasonably well up to seven days+, but declines rapidly afterward. Therefore, do not store eggs more than 7 days [Remember to include the days in shipping] before incubating. After 2 weeks of storage, hatchability drops to almost zero. Plan ahead and have a regular hatching schedule to avoid storage problems and reduced hatches.

Eggs should be placed in an incubator

  • maintained at 99.5 to 100 degrees.
  • Turned/Rotated at least 3 times a day.
  • Humidity increased higher last few days of hatching.

Durring hatching

Do not be tempted to open incubator, this will cause the humidity to drop, chicks can survive for 48hs+
