Abstract: In relation to the percentage of chicks that hatch out of eggs in an incubator, the maintenance of the optimum incubation temperature (37.2degreesC to 37.8degreesC) is a critical factor The temperature of the embryo depends on three factors: (1) the air temperature of the incubator, (2) the exchange of heat between the egg and its micro-environment, and (3) the time-variable heat production of the embryo. In commercial incubators, the transport of heat between the egg and its environment is mainly the result of convection.
