Entering weights for eggs

Adding egg weights in AIMS is very quick and simple.

  1. In the Egg Management form locate the egg you want to add the weight for in the egg control on the left hand side of the form and right click on the egg image with your mouse.
  2. This will take you to the egg weight page, if you are not already on it, add a new record with the current date and time for you then put you in the egg weight field.

    Type the weight and press the TAB key on your keyboard and you are done.

AIMS will calculate the % loss your egg will achieve at pip if left in the current incubator (3) and show you the humidity you need to get the weight loss % you have set for the egg (4).

No other incubation software calculate the humidity you need, which saves you time in managing your weight loss.

If you don’t have an incubator with the correct humidity but one which is slightly higher you can leave the egg where it is and weigh it the next day and AIMS will calculate the new required humidity.

You can repeat this process until you get near the humidity of your other incubator and then move the egg to that one.

You can use the quick note buttons to the right of the notes filed to add standard comments.

If you want to change the wording on these just right click on one of the buttons and an edit form will come up, allowing you to alter the wording for any of these buttons. The values of these are saved in the preferences file
