Eggs incubator temperature in Kenya’s Climate

In Kenya, the ideal temperature for an egg incubator largely depends on the type of eggs being incubated and the specific climate conditions in the area. Generally, for most bird eggs, including chicken eggs, the recommended incubation temperature is around 37.5 to 38 degrees Celsius (99.5 to 100.5 degrees Fahrenheit). This range is crucial for proper embryonic development.

However, it’s important to consider the local climate conditions in Kenya, which can vary significantly across the country. In areas with higher temperatures and humidity, incubators might need adjustments to maintain the optimal internal environment. It’s also essential to maintain a consistent humidity level inside the incubator, typically between 40% to 50% for the majority of the incubation period, and then increasing it to about 65% during the final days before hatching.
