MS Broedmachines premium hand built wooden cabinet incubators are, in our opinion, the pinnacle of small incubators in terms of ease of use, cleaning, reliability, but above all excellent hatch rates.
Whether you are starting out or a seasoned breeder you can acheive 100% hatch rates with these machines time after time.
All wood construction with a glass panel in the door. Veneer finish inside and out for ease of cleaning. All components used are more 'industrial' than those found in other machines and are all the better for it, giving years of trouble free incubation.
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 through a low vibration fan; the ventilation enters the machine above the heating element and is circulated around the cabinet by the fan ensuring warm air is delivered evenly and with no colds spots.
Simple, manual control is acheived by opening the brass vent on the top of the machine to allow the fan to suck in fresh air (this is brought in and over the heating element) and the plastic vent to expel damp air.
Extra water can be added in the water pot provided although if the machine is running full of eggs then this is generally only needed on hatching days if at all.
The change from Analogue to digital controls this year has given the best addition to the MS machines; 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 rocks the egg baskets from side to side so no sliding floor or jolting is involved and the turn is smooth, keeping the contents of the eggs moving without stressing.
Supplied with one standard hen egg tray with 6 rows taking 8 large fowl eggs each giving 48 egg capacity.
The standard tray is usually fine for duck, pheasant, and partridge etc. eggs.
A separate tray is needed for Goose & Turkey eggs and seperate trays are available for bantam and quail eggs too.
Unless the machine is going to be used solely for quail then the quail inserts are the more versatile option.
Hatching can be achieved simultaneously in the large wooden hatching box beneath the setting tray making the MS50 ideal for small regular hatches.
Because the MS50 does 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 container and full instructions on its use.
There is an option to add automatic humidity control and digital humidity readout for £260 extra. However, in our experience, this is unnecessary as the size and capacity of this machine means that when full, the humidity can be kept at 40% without adding water and with the vent open 2mm.
