The Z7 Raptor and K7 combination provide optimum conditions for the full incubation period with improved control and reliability.
3rd Generation no compromise contact incubator for unbeatable hatch rates with wild species, developed in conjunction with world-leading bird of prey breeders.
'Brinsea's Contact Incubators have been my choice for breeding falcons for many years and the Z7 represents a significant step forward in this technology.' Martyn Paterson, Senior Aviculturist and Falcon Breeder
The Z7 Raptor recreates the brood patch of the parent bird with a warm air-filled plastic diaphragm (skin) which can be inflated and deflated. A moving floor turning system rotates the eggs, either directly using the profile dividers or using rollers (all supplied as standard). The floor integral egg turn counter detects and displays the number of floor movements so you always know your eggs have been turned, even when you are not present. Through a simple 4 button menu-driven interface and high visibility OLED display the user can control:
Incubator Temperature (T1) – of the air temperature above the contact skin
Cooling – duration and interval that the skin is retracted from the eggs,simulating the bird leaving the nest.
Turning – the interval and duration of egg turning.
Temperature Alarm – warns the user if the incubator or room temperature falls outside user-settable limits.
Contaq Temperature (T2) – The unique contact thermometer provides a second, continuous and independent measurement of the contact skin temperature (T2) which corresponds to the egg shell temperature – eliminating the need for infra-red ear thermometers (or similar). T2 will normally be slightly lower than T1 depending on room conditions, and it is T2 that the user should set the incubator to.
Comprehensive instructions are supplied to get the best out of this advanced system.
Examples of typical maximum egg capacities:
Quail - 88
Partridge - 63
Pheasant - 48
Hen/Falcon/Saker - 42
Duck/Turkey - 20
Emu/Rhea - 8
Ostrich - 4
PLEASE NOTE: Low room temperature alarm may be triggered at approximately these temperatures to provide early warning of compromised performance: Z7 & K7: 17°C

I have a ova 190 which incubates everything from goose eggs to quail. I have just hatched some partridge and mallard eggs, which my husband brought home after someone disturbed the nests while cutting...
