I ordered this brooder for duck and pheasant eggs I was hatching. The brooder arrived in 2-3 days (I can't remember) after I placed the order. It was easy to put together and works perfect! The instructional video on the video makes it really easy to assemble. It is also easy to clean.


Sea turtle hatching season is officially underway in South Carolina, and state wildlife officials are asking beach residents and visitors to give these animals the best chance of success by following best practices for the season: (1) keep the beach dark and free of lights to avoid disorienting hatchlings, and (2) leave only footprints along the coast by picking up litter, removing personal belongings and filling in any holes at the end of the day.

Assisted hatching is generally performed on the third day of embryo development. The embryologists use a laser to create a very small hole in the zona pellucida. Assisted hatching can also be done on previously frozen and thawed embryos.

Hatching Asynchrony and Brood Reduction Whether eggs in a single clutch will hatch simultaneously or sequentially over an extended period of time is determined by the onset of incubation. In many birds, including most precocial species, incubation does not begin until the last egg has been laid, resulting in all of the eggs hatching within a few hours of each other. In contrast, many other birds begin incubation prior to laying the last egg of the clutch. This results in asynchronous hatchings separated by anywhere from a few hours to several days, depending on how soon incubation commences following the start of egg laying.

In altricial and semialtricial species, asynchronous hatching gives the first chicks to leave the egg a head start at vigorously begging for food and successfully attracting parental attention. The influential British ornithologist David Lack viewed the evolution of asynchronous hatching as a parental strategy for raising the largest number of offspring that food resources will allow when the abundance of food for the chicks cannot be predicted at the time that eggs are laid. The matching of offspring number with food availability is thus achieved by means of brood reduction: with asynchronous hatching, the smallest chick or chicks do not garner "their fair share" and will only survive in years of abundant food.

In the 25-40 years since Lack's studies, information about many additional species has accumulated, and hatching asynchrony is now thought to be more common than synchronous hatching among altricial birds. Ornithologists now think that asynchronous hatching is not a strategy for achieving brood reduction in many species. They have advanced other hypotheses to explain its evolution. Sociobiologists Anne Clark and David Wilson argue that high nest predation rates can encourage the evolution of asynchronous hatching as a means of minimizing the total amount of time that eggs and nestlings spend in the nest. Asynchronous hatching also can be interpreted for some insectivorous species as an adaptation to "speed up" hatching so that at least some of the nestlings can capitalize on rapidly (but unpredictably) peaking food resources (such as outbreaks of forest caterpillars).

This "new view" of the adaptive significance of hatching asynchrony helps to explain the increasing egg weight often seen from first to last egg laid among many asynchronously hatching passerines. These weight differences represent differing proportions of nutrients and energy invested in different eggs within clutches, with the greatest investment going into the last egg of the clutch. This pattern is clearly inconsistent with the notion of facilitating brood reduction, and appears to be a means of compensating for the delay in hatching and development by providing the last chick with more resources initially.

Whether the nits are hatching or not we need to remove them all together. Nits left in the hair from an old infestation can be confusing to a new head check like at the start of camp or from the school nurse. If they see nits present they must assume that person has an active case of lice. By removing the nits you are ensuring a clean head with no confusion.

To prevent spreading of animal diseases, many aspects of keeping and moving poultry and hatching eggs are set out Regulation (EU) 2016/429 of the European Parliament and of the Council (Animal Health Law, AHL) on transmissible animal diseases.

In addition, hatcheries and establishments keeping poultry for purposes other than slaughter moving animals to another Member State must be approved by the competent authority provided they comply with certain requirements as regards biosecurity, surveillance, facilities, personnel and supervision (Art. 7 and 8 of Regulation 2019/2035). Only poultry and hatching eggs that originate from a registered or approved establishment can be moved to another Member State.

The animal health requirements for movements within the Union of poultry and hatching eggs are laid down in Regulation (EU) 2020/688. These rules and risk mitigation measures ensure that movements of animals and hatching eggs do not pose a significant risk of spreading diseases that affect human or animal health.

Poultry and hatching eggs must fulfil the animal health requirements laid down in Regulation (EU) 2016/429. Part V (Articles 229 to 243) of this Regulation establishes the general animal health conditions for the entry into the territory of the Union. The objective of this harmonisation is to make sure that the same animal health principles for entry into the EU are applied in all the Member States and prevent animals or germinal products from entering EU territory carrying infectious diseases that are dangerous for livestock or humans. The general animal health requirements on which entry into the EU is based and the requirements for a non-EU Country to be authorised for entry into the EU are based on:

Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) 2020/692 lays down specific animal health requirements for Non-EU countries supplementing the measures laid down in the Animal Health Law (AHL). These include e.g. freedom from diseases (Newcastle disease or avian influenza), residency periods in the country of origin, requirements for establishments of origin, health requirements for the animals/germinal products and certification. For consignments with less than 20 units (animals or hatching eggs) a derogation applies (Art. 49 of Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) 2020/692).

Once listed in Regulation (EU) 2021/404, a non-EU-Country, territory or part thereof is approved in principle for export to the EU. However, before entry into the Union of live animals or hatching eggs further steps are necessary: An assessment of the specific disease situation and, accordingly, additional requirements to minimise potential disease risks are set. These are laid down in Part 3 and 4 of Annex V to Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 2021/404, and include: specific conditions depending on the health status of the non-EU Country in relation to highly pathogenic avian influenza or Newcastle disease.

Poultry and hatching eggs being presented for entry into the European Union must be accompanied by an official health certificate. The relevant certificates are laid down in Article 17 and Annex II Chapter 23 to 33 of Implementing Regulation (EU) 2021/403

Live animals and hatching eggs entering the Union are inspected at a Border Control Post. Regulation (EU) 2019/2130 provides detailed rules for official controls at Border Control Posts on animals entering the Union from non-EU countries.Animals or hatching eggs which do not comply with the Union's health requirements cannot enter or transit the Union. 041b061a72
