Incubators

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hello, I'm new to this site, but have found it interesting everytime I have visited so I decided to join today.  I would like to start incubating my chicken, duck, & quail eggs and was wondering about the different kinds of incubators.  There seem to be several selections, does anyone suggest a certain one?

What no turkey eggs?? :gig

 

  I'm sorry but, I have never incubated eggs  but, if you check out the incubation threads you can find good info that way.  I do think different incubators for  chicks, ducks, etc would be best because they hatch at different times, may have different humidity and temperature needs as well.  You also may want to get info from    the "Duck thread,"  and the " Quail thread." I think  quail especially have more requirements due to their nature.

Welcome to BYC :frow I'm a huge Brinsea incubator fan personally, but do have a look at the reviews section here and see what catches your eye:

Building your own incubator is of course also an option. There are loads of articles, threads etc on the topic, here are some:
