Hatcher Cabinet Egg Incubator - 1550

Average User Rating:
  • The 1550 HATCHER incubator is designed to allow for the best hatching conditions. Unlike setting incubators, hatchers usually operate at slightly different temperature and humidity settings to obtain optimum hatch. With five hatching drawers the 1550 Hatcher will hold the complete setting of the 1502 incubator. For expanding operations the 1550 can be matched with up to three 1502 incubators. The 1550 can be used to set eggs, but each egg will have to be turned by hand. For small chicks such as quail, each hatching tray comes with a tray cover.

    Total capacity ap-proximately 1250 Quail eggs or 360 Chicken Eggs. Hatcher includes: - 1 #3256 Pre-Set Electronic thermostat, and 1 #3122 wafer thermostat - 5 hatching trays with cover - 1 #3018 dial thermometer/hygrometer - 1 moisture pan with 2 wick pads - 1 Aluminum clean out pan - Instruction booklet DIMENSIONS: 30.25' Front to Back, 15.75' Wide, 31.75' High NO ASSEMBLY REQUIRED.

    Please Allow 2 to 3 weeks on Delivery of Incubator. We recommend waiting until incubator has arrived before ordering you eggs.

    "Awesome hatcher but..............."
    Pros - It frees up the incubators for another round with minimal cleaning.
    Cons - The hatching trays with the lids are too darn shallow!
    Love the machine and the bottom hatching tray is fine but when you have 200 plus eggs the steel trays with the tops must only be designed for quail only. I called GQF today, And I might might as well have been talking to a wall. The level of customerless service is there downfall.
    I just wanted to know if they had deeper trays so my Chickens did not have to do the low crawl on the hatching trays, And the ray of sunshine on the other end of the line could only say no that they get them from somewhere else. So I asked if there was a R and D department and I guess the answer must have been no. I was disconnected. So I guess that I need to take it upon myself to be creative.
    Maybe someone else has gone through this and figured something better out. I would appreciate any ideas or what you may have done. Thank you.

    Lotsapaints Thank you I did see a pic like what you are describing and will make some with hardware cloth tomorrow. I am using the rubber mesh like shelf liner, I have fount that it gives better traction for the chicks and eggs.
    I looked all over for solutions for this and could not find a soul that has talked about this problem.
    I do thank you for you're imput. The hatcher itself is awesome!

    I made wire cages to fit inside the trays I buy the paper they sell to line the trays makes it much easier to clean I just used cage clips to fasten the wire and use twisties to keep them in place made them about 5 inches tall works to keep them from getting in the some other section since I try to pedigree hatch
