Expected Hatch Rate


Don’t count your chickens before they are hatched, or even after for that matter!

Shipped eggs have a MUCH lower hatch rate.

The percent hatchability in the commercial poultry industry ranges from 78-88%.

Brooder Lights
LEDs and CFLs are better for light (less electric cost)

Ceramic emitters. They last longer and if they break, they don't get glass all over. 25-250 watt. I use 150s.

Smaller watt ceramic heat emitters if brooding indoors. They come in 50-300 watt sizes. Click HERE
