  • Turbofan Hova-Bator Incubator 2362N and Chicken Egg Turner 1611 Combo

    1 Review(s)

    Universal Egg Turner + TurboFan Value Deal!

    The Hova-Bator is known as the "World's Best Small Incubator", and this combo lives up to the expectation! Paired with a1611 Universal/Chicken Egg Turner, this unit can safely and effectively incubate up to 42 eggs of just about any size, from partridge up to duck eggs, without manual turning needed! Since eggs need to be turned several times a day to prevent the sticking of yolk and to exercise the embryo, this is by far the most time-consuming part of incubating when done manually. We are able to offer this item to you at a lower cost than many of the circulated air incubators because it uses a wafer-style thermostat rather than a digital thermostat, and features two small windows rather than one large window, resulting in lower cost without compromising egg viewing. The wafer thermostats are easy to use, and dependable. The circulated air feature means that you are able to hold a more consistent temp throughout your incubator regardless of the outside conditions. Therefore, there will be fewer instances of hot or cold spots, and that your heater will work more efficiently. This adds up to better hatch rates, the ultimate goal in incubating.

  • Turbofan Hova-Bator Picture Window Incubator 1583R

    1 Review(s)

    Incubation With A View

    Every breeder knows that having visibility of your eggs is important. They also know that reducing the number of times you open your incubator lid or door will help you maintain more consistent temperatures. The TurboFan Circulated Air Hova-Bator #1583 offers a full top, double plate plastic viewing window that allows you visibility of all of your eggs without opening the unit. This unit is great for the classroom or learning environment as it can allow many people to look inside at once, and allows for great observation of the hatching process. This unit is also able to keep an even better temperature consistency through utilization of the TurboFan circulated air system. This system helps reduce hot and cold spots, and leads to an overall better hatching environment. With the TurboFan, it is important to note that your humidity will rise faster than with a thermal air only unit, so you will want to make sure you know how to monitor and adjust those levels prior to incubating. Once your incubator is set up and ready to go, all you have to do is add your eggs, turn accordingly, monitor your temp and humidity, and wait for them to hatch!

  • Hova-Bator Incubator 1602N and Goose Egg Turner 1614 Combo

    1 Review(s)

    Thermal Air Goose Egg Incubation

    The radiant heat tube gently warms the inside of the incubator, the air and eggs. 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. This design includes two small windows on top for viewing. The wafer thermostat is proven, accurate technology that produces great hatch results. During incubation, eggs must be turned several times a day to prevent the yolk from settling to one side and to exercise the embryo. Turning the eggs by hand is the most demanding and time consuming part of egg incubation. The addition of the goose egg turner means that you can safely and easily incubate up to 12 large, Goose size eggs.

You can also choose to add an egg turner at any time, and select from the #1610 Quail & Chicken Egg Turners, #1611 Chicken/Universal Egg Turner, or the #1614 Goose/Large Egg Turner. Adding an egg turner will reduce your time-investment and ultimately reduce stress and worry while increasing your hatch rates.

  • Genesis Hova Bator Incubator 1588

    6 Review(s)

    Fully Digital Hova-Bator!

    The Genesis Model Hova-Bator is the latest and greatest from incubation experts GQF MFG. Featuring fully digital temperature settings, this model allows you to set your temperature to any required for your bird or reptile incubation, down to as low as 60ºF (room temperature has to be 50ºF for the 1588 to regulate 60ºF).  Even though you have this great range for setting your temp, it comes pre-set for bird eggs (99.9ºF), so most eggs will be able to go right into the incubator with no adjustments required! Just plug it in, add water for humidity, your egg turner (sold separately for all size eggs), and eggs! The LCD will display set temp, actual temp and humidity percentage in both Fahrenheit and Celsius, while the pre-set microprocessor based thermostat digitally regulates itself.

    This incubator is TUV Listed & safety tested, making it perfect for use in a classroom or laboratory setting. It also uses a 12 Volt system which operates on a 100-240 Volt AC, with only U.S. plug and cordset supplied. The digital technology in this thermostat means the command setting is never affected by changes in humidity, temperature or dust. Built in sensors prevent the “burn up” of eggs. In the event of a failure, the system simply shuts the heater off. Like all incubators, the Genesis requires a stable room temperature and should not be used in areas like sheds or barns.

    This easy to use, certified safe incubator is a great choice for breeders; both novice and expert, bird or reptile, even classrooms and labs!

Best Tabletop Incubators

Tabletop incubators are the largest category of incubators. They are smaller models often used by schools, hobby breeders, or for specialized breeding projects that take up a relatively small amount of space. Easy to store, these are great for the seasonal breeder who doesn't want/have space for a large machine sitting around. Of course, since these are so popular, there are a lot of variety and options that can make it hard to choose. The best place to start is by learning about the breed or breeds you plan to incubate. We have added some basic incubation instructions for different breeds that can help you get an idea of what requirements your breed may have.

Tabletop Incubator Considerations

When it comes down to it, there are three things to take into consideration when selecting your tabletop egg incubator. These are the features of the incubator, the construction and materials it is made from, and the needs of your breed. 

Features

 With incubators, you pretty much get what you pay for. Less expensive incubators typically come with fewer features and lower quality materials. More expensive incubators come with more features and better materials. Some of the features you may want to consider are digital temperature controls, humidity pumps, and even USB connections for charting incubation factors and process. One of our favorite choices is the ReptiPro 6000. It has a very sleek and unique exterior as well as digital thermostat controls, a cool-blue light for the interior, a large picture window, and a constantly running fan for better temperature distribution. It is a great value for any breeder who wants something a little more high-tech without breaking the bank.

Construction

There are two main materials that tabletop incubators are made out of: plastic and styrofoam. While styrofoam incubators don't tend to last as long as plastic incubators, they are typically a better value when it comes to price versus egg capacity. GQF MFG carries a full line of styrofoam tabletop incubators that are reasonably priced and have a variety of different features and options. Most other manufacturers offer molded plastic incubators that will last longer, and typically also come with a higher price tag. 

Egg Needs

Tabletop incubators can hold between 3-50 eggs, and come in a variety of sizes in between. Based on the size of your eggs and the quantity you hope to incubate, you may be able to eliminate some choices immediately. For example, if you only want to incubate a very small number of eggs, then you may want to choose an R-Com Mini Incubator or a Brinsea Mini Advance. These are also great choices for exotic birds as they will give you high control without taking up an uneccesary amount of space. If you are looking to incubate a larger number of eggs, you may want to go with a Hova-Bator Incubator with Turner. There are a variety of sizes of turners available for most egg types, and these units can hold up to 50 chicken eggs without a turner. 

Whatever incubator you decide, or if you need help deciding, we are here to help. You can contact us at anytime by calling (800)259-9755.
