When incubating hundreds of eggs at a time, breeders need reliability, ease of use and refined design for the highest number of successfully hatched chicks. Brinsea’s OvaEasy cabinet incubator range are now in Series II form and have gained a reputation as tough workhorses which just get on with their job of hatching eggs, leaving the user to concentrate on their birds rather than their equipment.
The OvaEasy range holds from 100 to 580 hens eggs and offer flexibility for different species and are optimised for multistage incubation (apart from the OvaEasy 100 which is single stage) for continuous batch incubation. The largest model in the range, the OvaEasy 580, is designed to work best with the OvaEasy Hatcher offering commercial grade multistage incubation for up to 770 hens eggs in a very cost-effective package.
‘We have been using the OvaEasy 580 incubator and hatcher for two years now and about to turn on any day for year three. Both machines are brilliant and easy to use. We incubate different size eggs from Pekin chickens to large New Hampshire Red chickens and lots of domestic duck eggs – with the adjustable slots/dividers we can mix eggs on the same tray. We put about two to four trays in at each time, normally once a week, mostly on the same day every week to help working out when to move the eggs to the hatcher and also not to over-fill the hatcher. The hatcher is great easy to use and clean after hatching, we use the humidity unit for extra humidity. We would recommended these products to anyone with lots of eggs to incubate and hatch.’ Mike & Rachel Mayers
