Bird Egg Incubators
All the bird incubators listed here are suitable for most species of poultry, fowl, and game birds. They will all maintain consistent temperature and adequate humidity which is needed for bird egg incubation. However, we do recommend certain incubators for specific kinds of birds, such as for rare and exotic eggs, or birds that lay larger eggs.
Bird Egg Incubator Considerations
The first consideration is how many eggs you want to incubate. If you are incubating less than 50 eggs, and with no plans to increase, you will be fine using any of the tabletop incubator models (that fit your other considerations). If you are incubating more eggs than that, or are planning to incubate more eggs in the future, then you have a couple of options. First is to buy multiple tabletop incubators. This could do well for you if you are hatching different types of eggs that require drastically different environments for hatching. However, if you are incubating in large quantities, then you will want to check out our cabinet incubators. We offer a variety of sizes and prices for these larger incubators, and they can be combined into a larger incubation operation.
Many common eggs will hatch with just the basic amount of care. However, when hatching rare or exotic bird eggs, you will want to invest in a incubator that gives you a great amount of control for your hatch. Some eggs can be very difficult to hatch, and not all bird incubators allow for high levels of precision. A small incubator that only holds a few eggs at a time can help you to get greater control because you have a smaller space to regulate. The Brinsea Mini Advance is a great unit that has full digital controls and allows you to easily dial your temperature up or down. It is also available in the EX version that features an automatic humidity pump for even greater control. Looking for a larger model? The R-Com King Suro incubator offers a larger capacity, as well as digital controls and an automatic humidity pump. Looking for even more? Then the top of the line, R-Com 50 Pro with USB may be right for you! With the ability to monitor your stats from the computer and graph your incubator conditions, this is perfect for someone who is really looking to perfect their breeding.
Many bird egg incubators come with trays or racks that are intended for a specific size egg. For many breeders, this is ideal. If you are hatching goose eggs, you will want to get an incubator that comes with a goose egg turner, such as the GQF HovaBator 2362 & Goose Egg Turner Combo. This is intended to hold larger eggs, so it is more durable and uses a basket rather than a cup design. However, if you want to hatch a variety of egg sizes, then you may want to go with an incubator that offers moveable dividers. This allows you to adjust your spacing, and you could incubate both turkey and quail eggs at the same time! R-Com and Brinsea both offer several incubators with adjustable dividers, like the R-Com Maru Cabinet Incubators and the Brinsea Octagon 20 Advance.
