Overview incubator for eggs "TGB 140"


The devices for organizing the incubation process of the TGB model range outwardly differ significantly from their counterparts. The skeleton of the structure is presented in the form of metal corners, on top of which a sheath is put on. Whereas it is more usual to see standard walls with a small window in front.

Unlike other devices of this kind, the creators of the TGB-140 incubator were tasked with organizing its mailing. Therefore, the design of the device itself and turned out. To collect it, you need a little time and carefully follow the instructions.

Domestic Incubator TGB-140

  1. Setting up the device to be done automatically depending on the type of bird eggs and their size.
  2. In case of any interruptions in the supply of electricity, the device can automatically switch to a backup power source, continuing to operate normally.
  3. If you want to independently control and adjust the operation of the incubator, you can safely turn off the auto mode. For example, turn off the "nest" mode and make more appropriate conditions, in your opinion.
  4. EFFECT: reduced egg incubation period due to biostimulation function. It involves the creation of separate sound waves, under which the embryos are adjusted.
  5. Due to the presence of biologic, the temperature changes with a certain step, imitating the normal behavior of the hen that incubates the eggs.
  6. Small dimensions and design features can significantly reduce the weight of the structure.
  7. The presence of a moisture meter provides continuous monitoring of the humidity in the internal space.
  8. The slope of the trays occurs in automatic mode, ensuring the normal course of the technological process of incubation.
  9. Due to the presence of heating elements sewn into the lining material, it is possible to achieve the required temperature conditions in the internal space.

Incubator of this model range refers to the budget devices. Its pricing policy allows you to ensure the acquisition of the device, even for the average representative of the country. So, the cost of construction is in the region of 15,000 rubles.


Detailed examination of the work of the incubator showed that there is no particular difference in the production of chicks using this design with an aeroionizer and a bioacoustic stimulator. If you correctly follow all the recommendations and follow the instructions of the standard incubation device, you can get the same result.


It is safe to say that the incubator type TGB is significantly different from its counterparts on the market. And according to many reviews, this unit has excellent performance, including:

  • maximum power - 118 watts,
  • mains supply - 220 V,
  • turn trays in automatic mode - with a frequency of 2 hours,
  • size - 60x60x60 cm
  • The operating temperature in the TGB incubator may vary in the range of -40. + 90 ° C.
These devices can easily be connected to a 12-volt battery, removed, for example, from a car. Such a function was provided in case an unplanned outage occurs.

Weight indicators of "TGB 140" also leave a positive impression and amount to about 10 kg (depending on the capacity of the eggs, this indicator may vary slightly). Such a weight indicator was achieved thanks to a lightweight, but still durable frame, as well as the thermo fabric from which the cover is made.

Production characteristics

The maximum capacity of eggs in the incubator "TGB 140" can reach:

  • up to 140 chicken eggs
  • up to 285 quail eggs,
  • up to 68 turkey eggs,
  • up to 45 duck eggs
  • up to 35 goose eggs.

Incubator Functionality

Each of the models of the incubator "TGB 140" is equipped with a special thermostat, which is a small microprocessor with a built-in function of additional bio-vibrations. This is a very interesting feature of this device, which allows you to significantly reduce the incubation period, contributing to the early emergence of chicks into the world.

Also, special mats in pallets regulate the humidity in the incubation chamber, absorbing the excess moisture or, conversely, giving, in case of its insufficiency. The process of absorption or release of moisture is regulated with the help of special sensors located along the perimeter of the heat chamber.

Another important component was the Chizhevsky chandelier, which acts as an aeroionizer. In the air space of the heat chamber, the number of negatively charged ions increases, which contributes to the physical strengthening of the young.

In addition, such a device also affects that all the chicks can hatch on time and with the help of their own strength, without dying at the same time in the undigested shell.

Advantages and disadvantages

Having dealt with the design and the main technical characteristics, you should learn about the advantages and disadvantages of the TGB 140 incubator. So, the number of indisputable advantages include:

  • ease of transportation
  • ease of assembly and disassembly,
  • possibility of breeding different types of birds
  • lightness in the weight category
  • compactness
  • spaciousness
  • ventilation with two fans,
  • thermoregulation and thermocontrast (helps to achieve natural conditions, as is the case with the hen),
  • moisture regulation
  • automatic turning of trays every 2 hours
  • uniform heating of all eggs,
  • ease of care and cleaning.
The list of benefits is quite impressive. But, as with any technical devices, this incubator also has several, albeit minor, but still flaws, namely:
  • it is impossible to control the incubation process without opening the thermal chamber itself, due to the absence of a viewing window,
  • the absence of cells and the holder for the eggs, and consequently, there is a high probability that during turning the trays the eggs can be beaten,
  • the pivot cable is not strong enough, and therefore quickly comes out of standing. It is recommended to replace it immediately before the start of operation, in order not to fall into distress and not to spoil the first brood.

Preparing the incubator for work

First you need to collect the frame of the incubator. To do this, alternately connect the elements of the metal structure as shown in the assembly instructions from the manufacturer. Next, strengthen the red mounting racks, which will be responsible for fixing the rotating camera. Then you can wear a thermal jacket and zip up. All the necessary elements of equipment are strengthened in the case itself, and therefore you will not have to connect them.

In the lower left corner on the rack is a toggle switch that automatically turns the eggs in the incubator. Water for moisture regulation is poured into a special pan, which is located under the nets with eggs. With the help of manipulations with the control unit, the temperature required for the complete incubation process is set.

On the same control unit there is also a pushbutton biostimulation regulator (0 - off, 1 - clicking sounds for chickens, 3 - for waterfowl, etc.). A litter of isolon material in a tray of water is placed during the onset of the second stage of the incubation process.

Egg laying

After the installation of the heat chamber is completed, it is necessary, with the help of a toggle switch, which is responsible for camera turns, to transfer the pallets to a horizontal position. Now you can start laying eggs. They need to be placed with a blunt end up, building in a checkerboard pattern for a better fit to each other.

You can also use the auxiliary partition, which is placed between the rows of eggs. To quickly and easily insert it, you need to slightly push the sides to the sides.

During the incubation process, the place where the heat chamber device is located plays an important role in their efficiency. It is necessary to provide a number of conditions so that the process goes without a single error:

  • a constant supply of fresh air and the possibility of its free access to the ventilation holes,
  • direct sunlight on the incubator housing is undesirable,
  • It is prohibited to place the unit in close proximity to heaters or heating elements, as well as near open windows or doors, due to the fact that drafts can affect the temperature inside the heat chamber,
  • should maintain a constant temperature in the room during the operation of the incubator. The temperature should be kept between + 20 ° С and + 25 ° С,
  • the temperature should not be allowed to fall below + 15 ° C and rise above + 35 ° C,
  • before using the new incubator or after a long interruption in the work, it is necessary to make sure that it is operational.

Guided by these rules, you can make the incubation process not only effective, but also safe for both the chickens themselves and the apparatus, whose service life depends on the conditions in which it is located. On average, the incubation period takes about 21 days, but sometimes this indicator is not significantly different, because all chickens develop individually.

Hatching chicks

It is possible to use the TGB heat chamber device for breeding juveniles from all possible types of domestic birds. In this unit laid the program incubation regime for each specific type of poultry, whose eggs are placed in the chamber.

When all the chicks are born, you should give them a little time to dry, then place them in a pre-prepared insulated box. After that, you should do the incubator itself, which is treated with a sponge moistened in any of the disinfecting solutions. Such a device should be stored in a dry, dark and cool place.

Device price

To buy such a device as an incubator "TGB 140" is unlikely to succeed in a regular store. The best way to purchase is through the Internet. Despite the additional costs of delivery, this unit is fully justified. In addition, its price range is affordable and economical, and therefore, almost every farmer or just the owner of the backyard can appreciate its advantages.

The price of such an incubator is quite reasonable and is:

  • 13-18 thousand rubles (the price varies depending on the availability of a humidity regulator, a Chizhevsky lamp and other additional functions),
  • 4-6 thousand hryvnia,
  • 120-150 US dollars.

Both experienced poultry farmers and farmers, as well as newcomers in this field, as well as household owners simply praise this model for the many positive qualities that manufacturers have given it. Excellent design received the very design of the device: lightweight, durable and thermally insulated. It perfectly fulfills its functions, and also easily passes cleaning, since the cover can be quickly removed by undoing several zippers. The stainless steel frame is also very pleased with its lightness and at the same time durability. In addition, it is very easy to assemble and disassemble, as well as transport from place to place.

There are, of course, some negative points that show up only at the time of the start of operation. For example, eggs that are not fixed in the nets may break when the structure is being twisted. To fix this problem, between the rows of eggs, lay a thin ribbon of foam rubber. They will create some kind of depreciation and protect the eggs from unwanted damage. The rest of this model is very satisfied, and often called her the best of the domestic. If funds allow, it is better to immediately purchase a model with a complete set (with a Chizhevsky lamp, a thermal sensor, a humidity controller, and other elements that make it easier to work with the incubator).

Having understood all the subtleties and nuances of this device in our review, we can conclude that this version of the incubator is suitable for household, when it is necessary to provide full comfort and the most balanced conditions for breeding a new generation of chickens in small quantities.

One way or another, incubators can significantly ease the process of the birth of new chickens, and the specimen presented in our review is no exception. And although he has both pluses and minuses, this model is still very popular, which is rightfully deserved by him. Try it and you!

Digital automatic incubator TGB-280RA
Incubators of increased hatchability of TGB for 280 eggs occupy an intermediate position between large domestic and small farmer incubators, therefore they are used with equal success for breeding young poultry, both in home gardens and small farms.
The incubator is equipped with a microprocessor-based digital thermostat and has a bioacoustic (sound) output stimulator. As the experiments show, the friendly hatching is preceded by clicking sounds of a certain frequency made by the chicks. With biostimulation, this frequency is somewhat higher, and the embryos adjust their own rhythms to it. Due to this, the incubation period for different batches of eggs is somewhat reduced, hatchability increases and the waste of the young is reduced.
