incubation

Replied by Haley Nam on topic incubation

I'd like to know how to sort out fertile eggs from non-fertile eggs for incubation.
My father owns an ostrich farm in South Korea, and he is the first person who imported ostriches to S. Korea about 20 years ago. He is still struggling how to find out if an egg is fertile or not.

Any good advice?
Please help me.

All comments are appreciated.

I agree with the member and the time frame. I noted you asked this question in September. The incubation and raising of the chicks is not a year round activity. Additionally, the only guarantee of a fertile egg is when a small starting embryo can be observed when candling. But that is a whole other story.

Usually if a fertile egg is held between 45 and 50 degrees you have approximately 7-10 days to get it to an incubator.
