Barbary Partridge Hatching Eggs
Barbary Partridge is a plump, heavy bird with a grey-brown back, grey breast, and buff-colored belly. The Barbary has streaked white flanks and red legs. It prefers to run over flying but, it will fly a short distance to avoid predators.
Barbary will lay 10-16 eggs per clutch. For hatching eggs, you will need either an incubator or a broody bantam hen. We recommend a styrofoam tabletop style incubator for your first-time hatching eggs. We recommend an automatic turner for 12 or more eggs.
Incubation Time: BarbaryPartridge Hatching Eggs will hatch in about 23-24 days.
Temperature/Humidity: Barbary Partridge Hatching Eggs will hatch best if incubated at 100 degrees F, decreasing to 98.5 degrees F during the final three days of incubation. Humidity should be kept at 50% until day 20 when it should be raised to 65% until the chicks hatch. Turning the eggs 3 times a day for the first 20 days is a solid practice. After day 20, stop turning the eggs.
Special Incubation Notes: Start up your incubator 2-3 days before your eggs are due to arrive. This gives your incubator time to fully come to temperature and to stabilize humidity levels. It is also a good practice to let your newly arrived eggs rest at room temperature for about 12 hours before placing them in an incubator. Place them large side up in a clean and dry egg carton. Incubators should be kept in a room with a constant even temperature and out of the sun.
