Egg Hatching Guide
An increasing number of individuals are becoming engaged in the incubation
and hatching of eggs of domestic birds. Often their interest in incubation
stems from a desire to maintain a small home flock to produce eggs for home
use or to maintain and develop a flock of “fancy” birds as a hobby. Others
are interested in incubation as a class or science project or class demonstration.
This circular is designed to assist those who want to incubate a small number
of eggs. It includes general principles concerning the care and incubation of
hatching eggs. When appropriate, special comments are made about the
peculiarities of certain species.
