Keep water in a trayinside the incubator tomaintain humidity.
Increasewater in theincubation tray.
Do not removethe top untileggs hatch.
Oxygen istaken in andcarbon dioxideand moisturegiven off duringdevelopment.Two shellmembranes protect the eggfrom bacteriaand prevent rapidevaporation of moisture.
Duck 28DaysVentilation
Ventilation holes provide fresh air.
The shell is porous to allowthe transfer of gases betweenthe developingembryo and theenvironment.

FACTS :The egg is fertilized inside the hen’s body before it is laid.The shell protects the contents of the egg. The shell is porous to allow the transfer of gasesbetween the developing embryo and the environment. Oxygen is taken in and carbon dioxideand moisture given off during development.Two shell membranes protect the egg from bacteria and prevent rapid evaporation of moisture. The white of the egg or Albumen contains protein for embryo development. The yolkcontains nutrients for growth and development. The white spot on top of the yolk is called thegerminal disc in infertile eggs or the blastoderm in fertile eggs. VOCABULARY:Fertilized eggShell Albumin YolkGerminal discBlastodermSuggestions followfor Classroom Activities.See separate pdf From pasture to productfor Egg sequencing cards.
