Incubating eggs is a fun, 21-day project that can be successful with careful attention and a few special pieces of equipment. With care, vigilance and planning, you will be able to hatch baby chicks that grow up to become part of your backyard flock.

Hatching eggs at home can be a fun project for those looking to grow their backyard flocks. Incubating chicken eggs is a 21-day process and requires an egg incubator to help control temperature, humidity and egg turning.


A step-by-step guide to hatching eggs:

For hatching to occur, the eggs must be fertile. Prior to incubation, a fertilized egg can be stored for a maximum of 7 days in a cool room kept at a steady 55-60 degrees Fahrenheit (not in the refrigerator – it’s too cold!). Once the fertilized eggs are placed in the warm incubator, they may develop over the course of 21 days, with the proper incubator set-up and care.
