All our Fertile Macaw Eggs are collected from very healthy birds in our aviary, candlelight tested and 100% confirmed fertile for hatching healthy babies.
Incubate the Macaw eggs in an incubator designed for parrot or exotic bird eggs. The incubator you use should have accurate.
What temperature should Macaw eggs be incubated at?
Temperatures that have been used successfully range from 98.7 to 100 degrees Fahrenheit. About 99 degrees seems to work well for most types of parrot eggs. Of course, the best temperature for you to use will depend on many different factors. The most important of these factors is humidity.
How long does it take for a Macaw Egg to hatch?
Incubation Duration. Parrot egg incubation periods can vary by breed but are typically between 24-28 days. Some parrot breeds can hatch in as little as 18 days. Research your specific breed to find out how long your egg will need to be incubated.
How long can Macaw Eggs sit before you put them in the incubator?
Turn the eggs to a new position once daily until placing them in the incubator. Hatchability holds reasonably well up to 3 weeks. Therefore, do not store eggs more than 3 weeks before incubating.
