Humidity for hatching rutin chickens


Humidity needs to be maintained at 60% for days 1-10 of incubation. Humidity needs to be held at 75% on the 11th-16th days of hatching.



  1. Keep the temperature at 38.2℃ from the 1st to 5th day of incubation.

  2. Keep the temperature at 38℃ for the 6th-10th days of incubation.

  3. Keep the temperature at 37.8℃ for the 11th-15th days of incubation.

  4. During the 16th-19th days of incubation, keep the temperature at 37.5℃ (about 15-16 days out of the shell).

Keeping warm

  1. After shelling, keep the ambient temperature at about 36℃, and gradually adjust the temperature downward after 3 days.

  2. After 7 days out of the shell, adjust downward to about 33℃. After 14 days, adjust downward to about 31℃. After 21 days, adjust downward to about 28℃. After 30 days, keep the temperature at about 22℃-25℃.

How to hatch the rutin chickens

Hatching machine

Use the waterbed incubator and automatic hatching machine as hatching tools. Use the waterbed incubator to pay attention to manually turning the eggs daily.

Seed egg treatment

  1. In spring and autumn, breeding eggs laid within 7 days are appropriate. In summer, eggs laid within 3 days are suitable. In winter, eggs laid within 10 days are reasonable.

  2. After getting the breeding egg, clean the dirt on it and leave it with the large end facing upward for 4-8 hours.

Hatching temperature control

Do an excellent job of temperature control as described above. Turn the breeding eggs over 3-4 times a day for 13-14 days before hatching, turning them in half a circle each time.


  1. Starting from the 15th day of hatching, the chicks will gradually emerge from their shells.

  2. Open the incubator for about 15 minutes a day (4 times a day) during the shelling period to breathe, and spray warm water at 30°C on the eggshells when breathing.
