    5 Tray Poultry Egg Incubator/Hatcher

    5 trays allow you to eliminate all those Styrofoam incubators that you have sitting all around your house.

    250 watt heating element and wafer thermostat. Electronic thermostat avail. Standard automatic egg turners fit right in.

    Built by a carpenter/ industrial maintenance technitian with over 20 years experience.






    I started raising different birds a few years ago and I always seemed to run into roadblocks. When I was trying to do some research as to the housing requirements I gathered what information I could. Then through trial and error I have come up with some plans that really helped me to raise and take care of my birds in the most efficient, space saving, and simplest methods that I could come up with. I try to keep my chores aggravation free, and try to make them as simple and easy to do as possible. We all know, if it's aggravating or time consuming we don't want to do it. When it came to incubators, it was styrofoam or go to the bank and take out a loan. Well with this unit, if you were like me, you probably already have the egg turners. The unit comes with a cd that shows how to set up the unit and also contains simple directions on how to make simple fixed trays for hatching.

    I think it looks good.
    Have you asked any questions yet like how do you add humidity, where are the vents and how many. Also how can you put automatic turners in and the heat not go out the hole that the plugs need to thread through?
