New and improved in 2017!! We have rethought our egg incubation starter kit to make it easier for you!!
This is the same incubator starter kit we have brought you for years but with a new focus on ease of use! Here is what is included and how we feel it will help you to succeed. Because making it easier for you to hatch and brood your chicks is what we want to do with this kit.
Includes (1)Electronic Thermostat Hovabator Incubator, (1)Automatic Egg Turner, (1)Little Giant Egg Candler, (1)Guide to Better Hatching Book,(1) single lamp brooder w/ guard, (1) 250 watt infrared heat bulb, (1) brooder thermometer, 30 ft. roll of draft protection shield, (2) 1 gal. waterer with 2 no drown bases and 2 Wider Bases, (1) baby chick bulk feeder, (2) large plastic jars w/ no drown founts, 1 Jar vitamin and electrolytes and the book Storeys' guide to Raising Poultry. See below for more detail.
Incubator - We have included the electronic thermostat Hovabator the 2362E. This incubator gives you the easy to use dial thermostat and the great reliability of a hovabator.
Automatic Turner - We have included an automatic turner with this kit that will relieve you from the tedious job of hand turning eggs every day of incubation. It included the universal racks that will hold 42 eggs from the small partridge eggs to the larger duck eggs(it will hold 42 chicken eggs).
Egg Candler - We have included the easy to use bright little giant egg candler. This candler does not require a plug and runs off of batteries. Meaning it's easy for you to bring the candler where you need it. No cords attached.
Waterers - This is one point where we have tried to make life easier. We have replaced our previous jars that had small openings to wide mouth gallon screw on jars. Bringing you easy to clean(easy to get your hand into a wide mouth jar) easy to fill(screw on lids are secure and easy to use) and since they are larger 1 gallon vs 1 quart it will be less filling, easier because it's less work! These come with both a no drown fount opening base and the regular base so they are perfect for baby chicks then you switch them to the wider base when they get a bit older and they want easier access to water.
Feeder - Once again we are trying to make life just a bit easier for you. We have now decided to put our baby chick bulk feeder in with our egg incubation starter kit. We did this because it's easier to fill and clean and harder for the chicks to make a mess of.
Vitamin and Electrolytes - We include a jar of vitamin electrolytes with an easy to use scoop for measuring. It uses one scoop per gallon. We have included 1 gallon waterers with this kit. So it will be one scoop per fill.. once again we are trying to make it easy!
Brooder Draft Guard - This is an easy to use containment for your baby chicks. All you need to do is make a circle with the cardboard draft guard and then put your chicks within the draft guard. Then they will have to stay grouped up by your brooder heat source.
Single Bulb Brooder - This is a 250W red bulb chicken brooder. Simply hang it about 18" above the ground and then fine tune it till you hit 95 degrees. You simply adjust the level of heat by raising or lowering the single bulb brooder.
Brooder Thermometer - We provide a simple but effective thermometer. This makes it easy for you to make sure your birds are kept at 95 degrees after they hatch. Then every week after that you lower the temp by 5 degrees. This thermometer makes it easy to measure.
Guide To Better Hatching - This is a great book on how to succeed when hatching all types of fowl.
Poultry Raising Book - We have included the excellent - Storey's Guide to Rasing Poultry. This book gives you all the tools you need to make you successful. Not only does it give great details on how to raise and hatch chickens but it talks about all types of poultry. So if your interests start to switch into other birds you will be prepared with this great book!
