To choose an appropriate incubator it is important to be aware of the desired use:
a) "Cycle-Incubating": New eggs are put in the incubator each week (or day/every few days) following a fixed plan/rhythm. With this method we advise the use of a combination containing setters and hatchers. Please have a look at our "Incubating systems" - there you will also find a detailed explanation of this method. Of course it is also possible (and cheaper, while having less options) to combine some of our wooden incubators "HEKA Jumbo XXL".
b) "Single-Stage-Incubating": The eggs are all put into one incubator at the same time and hatch in the same machine. If you work with 21 incubators (each 2,000 eggs capacity), you can either put in 46,200 eggs at the same time, or put in 2,200 eggs each day. This ensures great flexibility when using our incubation systems. This flexibility also comes with a slightly higher price in comparison to optimally used "Cycle-Incubating". The best option for "Single-Stage-incubating" is our "HEKA Favourite-Olymp 2200/B+S (one machine that combines breeding and hatching with the least effort possible) - alternatively any other incubator (except for hatchers only) can also be used this way.
