Incubator egger 88 is a small-sized incubation apparatus for hatching poultry. The Egger 88 combines the functions of an incubator and an output cabinet. The device is intentionally created of such dimensions, so that you can take the bird in any room, without the need to additionally equip it. The model is completely automated, so it is perfect for novice farmers.

The device operates from the power supply system at 220V. The device operates by consuming a minimum amount of electricity. Egger 88 is equipped with a ventilation system for air circulation inside the chamber.

The temperature inside the chamber is maintained by the heater. The main feature of the heater is the ability to change the temperature, changing by one tenth of a degree.

When setting the temperature, it will be maintained autonomously. The chamber has a hole to control the entry of fresh air. The air warms up and enters the incubator at a temperature that is set manually.

The moisture percentage is set manually. You can set the sensor to 40% - 75%. This range is wide enough for a small-sized device.

Water tank holds 9 liters, so you need to pour less liquid. This volume is enough for 4-6 days, depending on the established level of humidity. Increased humidity is achieved through special fans that work offline.

The fan is used to ventilate the chamber, which allows you to control the level of moisture and heat. If the figures exceed the permissible rate, emergency mode is activated.

Features and capabilities:

Egger 88 is an incubator and hatcher! 2 functions in one device. 220 volt incubator. The quality of a professional incubator, only in small dimensions. The technologies are comparable with large incubation cabinets, but at the same time, the dimensions make it possible to display them in ordinary rooms that are not intended for incubation, that is, in an apartment, house, or room. The incubator is as automated as possible, which is a great advantage for people who decide to try their hand in the field of farming. The ability to connect through the inverter to the battery. The Egger 88 has a powerful fan for circulating air inside the chamber, a fast-response heater with low inertia that ensures accurate temperature control within 0.1 degrees. In other words - if you set the temperature to 37.8 - then it will hold exactly that. The incubator has an adjustable hole for a constant flow of fresh air into the incubator. The incoming air has time to warm up before it enters the main incubation chamber, which makes it possible to maintain the temperature in the chamber at a predetermined level. Humidity is automatically regulated, can support at 40% - 75%, which is a large range for a small-sized incubator. The volume of the water bath is 9 liters, which makes it possible to fill the water less often. This volume is enough for 4-6 days, depending on the humidity regime. To raise the humidity, fans are used in automatic mode. A fan is built in to purge the chamber; it can also be used to discharge excess heat and / or moisture from the incubation chamber — to activate emergency mode.

One set of trays is included in the package of an incubator. The EGGER 88 is 4 trays (for a description of the trays, see the paragraph “PARAMETERS”).

  • good sound insulation (at least 24 dB),
  • high moisture resistance
  • good wear resistance and impact resistance.
The device operates from the mains with a voltage of 220 V. The power consumption is not more than 190 V during heating.

Incubator Functionality

The main element of the electronic unit is the controller. He performs management:

  • moisture
  • a roll of eggs
  • external ventilation,
  • heating system
  • emergency modes of ventilation.

Humidity inside the unit can be adjusted from 40 to 80% with an accuracy of 1%. Humidity is provided by the evaporation of water, which is supplied from a special tank.

The volume of the tank is 9 liters, it is sufficient to provide automatic control of the parameter for 4-6 days, depending on the selected indicators. Maintained air temperature - up to 39 ° С. Adjustment accuracy - plus or minus 0.1 ° С.

Optimum performance for chicken eggs:

  • humidity - 55%,
  • temperature - 37 ° C.

Rotation of trays is carried out mechanically. Trays inside the case are in constant motion and slowly rotate. Within 2 hours, the trays are rotated 90 degrees from one side to the other.

The fans are located in the lower part of the installation, they take air from the chamber and take it out. At the top of the chamber are air intakes. In the presence of a separate fan for purging the camera on a timer, which can be used instead of the main in case of emergency.

Advantages and disadvantages

The advantages of Egger 88 include:

  • the possibility of incubating eggs of different bird species,
  • the combination of the functions of the incubation and excretory device,
  • ease of moving the model and the possibility of placing on a small space,
  • simultaneous incubation of the average batch of eggs,

Preparing the incubator for work

For successful hatching of chicks, besides an incubator, it is also desirable to have:

  • uninterruptible power supply,
  • 0.8 kW electric generator.

Modern generators can be diesel, gasoline or gas. The generator will protect you from possible interruptions in the operation of power grids. The uninterruptible power supply unit is not a mandatory element, but it is recommended to protect the electronics from power surges and is used to smooth out peak voltages.

Before work you need:

  1. Wash the device with soapy water and a sponge for disinfecting surfaces, disinfect, dry.
  2. Check the condition of the power cord and the tightness of the case. Using obviously defective equipment is prohibited.
  3. Fill the humidification system with warm, boiled water.
  4. Incorporate an incubator into operation.
  5. Check the operation of the turning mechanism.
  6. Check the operation of the ventilation system, temperature and humidity control.
  7. Pay attention to the correctness of the sensor readings and their compliance with real values.
If problems are observed in the operation of the systems - contact the service center.

Egg laying

Fix trays for a specific type of eggs (chicken, duck, quail).

Requirements for eggs:

  1. For incubation take clean, unwashed eggs of the same size.
  2. Eggs must be free of defects (thin shell, displaced air chamber, etc.) - checked by an over-sight.
  3. Egg freshness - no later than 10 days from the moment of laying.
  4. Stored at a temperature not lower than 10 ° C.

Before putting the eggs in the incubator, warm them to room temperature at 25 ° C. After the eggs are laid in trays, the lid is closed and the parameters of the Egger 88 are set. The temperature (37-38 ° C), humidity (50-55%) and ventilation time must be set.

Video: preparing eggs for laying in an incubator Now you can close the incubator and turn it on. Then you need to make sure that the device works in the specified mode. If the incubation of eggs of rare breeds, then you need to consider that such eggs are not rejected because of their high value.

When the shells are contaminated, the dirt is scraped off with a knife. Chicken eggs are laid for incubation in the evening - so that the process of hatching of chickens begins in the morning and the whole brood has had time to hatch during the day.

In the process of incubation requires periodic monitoring of the systems - humidity, temperature, air, turning eggs. It is recommended to check equipment operation at least 2 times a day - in the morning and in the evening. In case of deviations from normal temperatures, disturbances in the development of the embryo and developmental delay are possible. Violations in the moisture regime lead to a thickening of the shell, because of which the chicken will not be able to hatch. In addition, in dry air, chickens are small. Excessively humid air may cause the chicken to stick to the shells.

Hatching chicks

3-4 days before the end of the incubation, the eggs from the incubation trays are laid on a special mat on the false-bottom of the chamber. To turn the eggs in this period is prohibited. Hatching chickens start on their own.

After the chicken has hatched - it must dry before it is removed from the incubator in the manger. A dried and active chicken must be taken out, as it will prevent other chicks from hatching.

If the process is delayed and only a part of the chickens are hatching, and the other is late - increase the temperature in the chamber by 0.5 ° C, this will speed up the process.

Possible problems and solutions:

  1. The chicken has broken through the shell, it beeps quietly, but it has not come out for several hours. Such a chicken takes time to get out. He's just weak and gets out slowly.
  2. The chicken has broken the shell, does not come out and squeals nervously. Perhaps the crust has dried and does not allow it to get out. Dampen your hands with water, take out the egg and lightly wet the foil. This will help the baby.
  3. If a piece of shell hangs on the selected chicken, lightly moisten it with water so that it can fall away.
