- An egg incubator is a device that provides controlled conditions to hatch eggs artificially.
- A hatcher is a device that provides the optimal conditions for eggs to hatch, typically used after the eggs have been incubated for a specific period.
- Egg incubators and hatchers come in various sizes, from small tabletop models to larger cabinet-style units.
- They can be designed to accommodate different types of eggs, including chicken, quail, and duck eggs.
- Good incubators and hatchers should have precise temperature and humidity controls to ensure successful hatching.
- Some models have automatic turning mechanisms to mimic the natural behavior of a mother bird.
- Incubators and hatchers can be electric, propane, or solar-powered, depending on the manufacturer and model.
- A good incubator or hatcher should be easy to clean and maintain to prevent the buildup of bacteria and other contaminants that can harm developing embryos.
- They should also have a clear viewing window to monitor the progress of the eggs and make any necessary adjustments.
