Incubating Apps for Tracking Incubation

Inside: Discover the convenience of incubating apps for precise egg management. Track turns, candling, lockdown, and hatch dates effortlessly.

I have hatched without using incubating apps, and it works great, just as great as hatching with incubating apps. The best part about using an app to help track incubation is that you don't have to keep counting forward and backward as you figure out hatch dates.

Incubating Apps for Tracking Incubation

The thing about using an app when incubating is that it makes it easier in the long run to keep track of the little things. You don't have to count forward and backward to know when to candle eggs when to start incubator lockdown, or to know when you should expect your eggs to hatch. It's not fun wasting time like that and stressing about it.

Do you need an app on your phone to help you track incubating your eggs? Nope. Does it make things easier? Yup. And that's why I try to use them. I don't always remember to set the apps right away but most allow you to backdate.

I find it super helpful to use the app when I have more than one hatch happening. With everything else that is going on in life, it's easy to forget things like when to put an incubator into lockdown.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    How do I start incubating? Gather the needed supplies: fertilized eggs and an incubator! Learn about incubating that species of eggs because different birds have different needs. For example: chickens take 21 days while coturnix quail take 18 days.

    What happens if eggs don't hatch in 21 days? If eggs don't hatch after the 21-day incubation period, it typically indicates that they were not fertilized or that the embryos did not develop properly. If I know eggs were developing on lockdown I leave them for a couple more days to give them a chance.

    How long can you hold eggs before incubating? If eggs need to be stored before they go into the incubator, they must be kept below room temperature. Fresh eggs up to five days old
