Incubator hygiene is very important for the success rate of the hatching eggs.
I have finished using the incubator this year so it is important that I make sure that the incubator is thoroughly cleaned and disinfected before it is stored away.
This is one job I never really enjoy. I try to do it as soon as the last set of chicks are taken from the incubator as any remaining water begins to stagnate and smell if not cleaned out quickly.
Putting the incubator away clean makes the job of cleaning and disinfecting the incubator alot easier when it is time to prepare the incubator for incubation.
