With the rapid development of China's economy, people's living standards have been improved, and the demand for livestock is also growing. The output of traditional breeding has not met the current demand. The new way of breeding is the only way to improve the output, and the incubator is one of the important equipment in modern poultry breeding equipment.
When the incubator hatches eggs,Temperature and humidity sensorTemperature and humidity are two important factors.Take egg hatching as an example. When an egg is just hatched, the egg is filled with various liquids, including water.During hatching, eggs lose some moisture through the holes in the shell.The moisture loss of eggs depends on the external humidity.When the egg loses some moisture, an air bag will be formed inside the egg, which will determine the quality of chicken hatching. If the air bag is too small, the chicken will suffocate and drown when passing through the eggshell; if the air bag is too large, the hatching volume will be too small. If the size of the air bag is appropriate, the success rate of hatching will reach the maximum.
The humidity range of the incubator is about 50% RH at the beginning of the incubation period, about 60-75% RH after three weeks, and about 25% RH at the final sale stage.
How to improve humidity?
The best way to increase humidity in the incubator is to put more water in the incubator.If that's not enough, try to keep the incubator closed.Every time you open the incubator, some moist air is expelled and replaced by less humid air.If there is not enough water in these incubators, then they can be added.This will cause more water to evaporate, which greatly increases the humidity.
How to reduce humidity?
The easiest way to reduce humidity in an incubator is to simply open the vents and remove water from the incubator.In almost all cases, this is more than enough.If you live in a place with a very humid climate, the outside air may be too humid.In this case, you can buy a dehumidifier for the room where the incubator is located, or add some dehumidification items to the incubator itself.Both rice and tissue can effectively reduce the humidity in the incubator.
