  • The Smart INCUBATOR is supplied complete with all that is needed to hatch chickens from fertile eggs. It is all set-up and ready to start incubating. This includes: instructions, thermometer, egg trays, power lead, etc.

  • Hatches of 80% from fertile eggs are normally achieved. (the incubator can not do the roosters job, or replace good feeding)

  • Before dispatching the incubator the temperature of the incubator has been set to 99 ¾ °F and the thermometer that is supplied has been checked for accuracy and any inaccuracy noted.

  • Each incubator is individually built and tested. There is a two year guarantee on all materials and workmanship. The incubator has been designed so that should anything breakdown it can be repaired.

  • The cabinets are constructed from form-ply because of its strength, water proof properties, low heat transfer and the anti-pathogen properties of the timber. Since the air in the unit is refreshed about six times an hour, there is little benefit to having excessive insulation.

  • The 81 and 162 egg models come with a window in the door for easy viewing. There is an optional extra of an internal light that can be switched on and off. (A good torch could be used for viewing if desired).

  • There are 81 large / bantam egg spaces in the standard trays. (The 162 egg model has two 81 egg trays). The eggs are placed small end down and they are tilted 90° by manually pushing or pulling a wire rack that encloses each egg: i.e. - the individual eggs are not handled when turning the eggs.

  • Opening the incubator to turn the eggs is not a problem as it recovers to its set temperature in about 3 minutes. The chicks are hatched in the same tray even if only part of the tray of eggs is due to hatch. This allows setting of eggs when ever it suits you. Say once a week.
  • For the small eggs like the Barbu dUccle, or for people who only have bantams there is a 120 bantam tray available as an extra, it will turn eggs as small as Jap Quail eggs. Similarly for the quail specialist there is a 182 egg tray.

  • To facilitate the rolling of the difficult-to-hatch eggs, such as turkeys, ducks, geese, etc. there are a few different sized, wire mesh inlays to fit the standard tray. These are available as an extra.

  • The heating is achieved by circulating the air with a fan that has ball bearings. The air flows across a wire element that should never need to be replaced. The baffles control the air flow so that the temperature is exceptionally even throughout the incubator.

  • The temperature is controlled by an electronic thermostat that is reliable and holds the temperature to about ±0.15°C. It has a controller that can be turned 10 times with about 1½°C (2°F) per turn. To prevent children from being too helpful a screwdriver is required to change the temperature.

  • The units have been designed to operate in room temperatures between 5°C and 40°C and still hatch eggs. Therefore they are able to cope with the winter cold and the summer heat in most sheds.

  • The average power consumption at a room temperature of 20°C is about:-

    -2 ½ kW /day for the 81 egg model
    -4kW /day for the 162 egg model
    -5kW /day for the 243 egg model

  • It is in my interest to have customers successfully hatching eggs. So as part of any sale I am available to advise you on any difficulties that you may encounter with your purchase.

  • Over the last 15 years, I have kept my prices low by direct selling and making to order, so that any variations required can be made. It usually takes approximately 2 - 4 weeks to build, test, and deliver an incubator. Please do not hesitate to ring about any queries.
