MS Broedmachines premium hand built wooden cabinet incubator with an easy to clean veneer finish inside and out made to the highest quality for the serious breeder.
All wood construction with a veneer finish inside and out for ease of cleaning and with a glass inspection panel in the door.
A belt driven bar & bladed fan circulates around the setting basket ensuring even airflow and no cold spots.
Plastic point-down egg trays are used in the MS400 incubator.
Coming factory calibrated and set to 37.7oC the digital controls can be easily adjusted and re-calibrated if desired. The thermostat has an accuracy of 0.2oC.
In normal use they are hardly needed however as the quality circuit board and fine sensor work seamlessly with the heavy duty heating element to keep the cabinet temperature at the level set by the user regardless of changes in the environment around the incubator.
Perfect air circulation is achieved by the centre bar, belt driven, bladed fan which has the best, most even circulation of any cabinet incubator we've ever seen and uneven temperature and cold spots are not possible.
Simple, manual control is achieved by opening the brass vent on the top of the machine to allow an air exchange.
Extra water can be added in the water pots provided although if the machine is running full of eggs then this is generally only needed on hatching days if at all.
Automatic humidity control can be added as an optional extra, this consists of an external water reservoir which feeds water into a similar reservoir inside the incubator which has its own heating element giving precise control and warm humidity rather than ultrasonic, cold water foggers seen elsewhere which can shock embryos.
The change from Analogue to digital controls this year has given the best addition to the MS incubators; adjustable turning intervals.
Coming factory set to turn once per hour through 90o which is correct for most poultry species but this can be adjusted down to turn once per minute if required which is a huge benefit to breeders of birds of prey, parrots & finches.
The turning motor tilts the egg baskets from front to back and the turn is smooth, keeping the contents of the eggs moving without jolts etc.
Supplied with large fowl egg trays, plastic made and as with the smaller models the eggs still go point down.
For eggs of a different size then purpose made galvanised setting trays can be supplied at additional cost to accommodate eggs of quail, bantam, turkey, goose or ratite.
Hatching can be achieved simultaneously in the large hatching baskets beneath the setting trays.
Because the MS incubators do such an excellent job of the 18 day incubation period you'll find the pipping and hatching to be fast and clean so there is no need to raise the humidity for 3 days before hatching like in other incubators, only on the final day will it need to be raised which has no effect on the other eggs being incubated.
Comes fully factory calibrated and complete with back-up Thermometer, Hygrometer, Hatching Box, Water containers and full instructions on its use.
All our larger MS Incubator & Hatchers are handmade to order and will be sent to you on a large pallet.
