Excerpt from A Guide to Better Hatching Introduction....

There are numerous factors affecting the successful hatching and raising of all fowl.  The chain of events begins long before the eggs are set or placed in the incubator. Our modern science and technology has provided us with a great deal of information on the subject.  A Guide to Better Hatching discusses many of these factors.

Each species of fowl has its own peculiarities that should be understood. Basically. we must consider the parent stock, their nutrition, and their environment. We must study all the factors leading up to the laying of a fertile egg.

Once the egg is produced, great care should be taken to insure that the egg to chick cycle runs its full course.  We know that there are certain types of eggs that hatch better than others. The hatching eggs must be stored and cared for properly.

Finally, the egg must be incubated properly in order to hatch.  There are many styles of incubators that will perform the function of hatching fowl successfully. Care for the eggs does not end when the egg is placed in the incubator, but must be continued throughout the incubation period.  The whole idea of incubation is to turn an egg into a strong healthy chick.  This means we must have a fertile egg from a healthy, well fed, hen and the proper equipment to provide temperature, exercising (turning), humidity, and ventilation for the egg during the transition from egg to chick.

This handbook discuss all of these aspects.
