Little Giant Still-Air Incubator

Average User Rating:
4.5/5,
  • Little Giant table top incubators set the standard for table top incubating with the built-in digital electronic thermostat with temperature and humidity readout. It uses THERMAL AIR FLOW, where the radiant heat tube gently warms the inside of the incubator, air, and eggs. The Thermal action of the heated air flowing out of the exhaust vents in the top of the incubator draws fresh air in through the bottom vent. This thermal air flow also assists the drying of the chicks after they hatch. It is manufactured of durable Styrofoam that efficiently retains the gentle heat produced by the 40 watt heating element. This combined with the easily adjustable, digital electronic thermostat with LCD screen, effectively controls the heat to produce the ideal environment for incubating. Built-in moisture rings easily allow for the addition of water to maintain humidity, a key factor to a successful hatch. Two 4 x 8 inch viewing windows allow for a great view of the hatching process and are great for educational purposes. Higher sidewalls help keep birds inside when the lid is removed and a durable and easily washable plastic mesh screen supports the eggs to combine for a safe hatch. This incubator can hold approximately 46 chicken, 188 quail, 90 pheasant, and 40 turkey or duck eggs. Additional accessories can be purchased to enhance the hatch rate and over all experience. As always, all of our products are covered by our One-year Hassle Free Guarantee. Purchase today with no worries and experience the Little Giant incubator for yourself.

    "Successfully Hatched out 32 chicks"
    Pros - kept the eggs perfectly warm and easy to clean!
    Cons - humidity had trouble staying at optimal levels
    This worked great for us...had to incubate unexpectedly! Only downside was that I did have to spray my eggs 2 to 3 times a day since the humidity was not consistent and worried me. I did not have the automatic turner but I turned my eggs twice a day and all my chicks hatched out with no problems!

    "IT'S A GOOD INCUBATOR, BUT HAS A FEW FLAWS..."
    Pros - easy to use buttons, digital screen, quiet
    Cons - difficult to stabilize temperature, outside thermometer never matches the inner thermometer, water leaks through the bottom,
    I like this incubator because it is digital and I don't have to use the knob I'm used to using. Unfortunately, when I removed it from the box I cut the inner thermometer (hanging from the inside of the lid) off the plastic slip, so it caused a lot of problems. MAKE SURE YOU LEAVE IT ON THE SLIP, otherwise you'll be like me, taping it to a piece of cardboard or the inner thermometer so it can sit on the eggs. It has a difficult time stabilizing, so I suggest sitting next to it and/or closely monitoring it for 10-15 minutes after having to open the lid and close it again because the temp will either spike, or drop, or do both in a matter of seconds. DO NOT TRUST THE TEMP ON THE DIGITAL SCREEN, it definitely doesn't match the inner temp. It might say 99.5*, while the inner temp says 102*, so make sure not to fry or freeze your eggs. I have to spray the eggs because water leaks through holes in the bottom (which I've learned the hard way.) I suggest this incubator for experienced egg hatchers.
