Hygrometry

  • Regulate hygrometry to promote hatching

    The problem of eggs that do not hatch, despite being fertilized, encountered by breeders gave me the idea of this topic.
    The importance of the humidity level during egg development and hatching in our rearing rooms pushes us to find solutions to regulate it, especially during dry periods.

    I use an ultrasonic humidifier, adjustable and ideal:
