Active Periodic Cooling (First in the market)
Most birds leave the nest, at least once, during incubation. During this time, the eggs cool down and release moisture. Active Periodic Cooling (APC) changes the temperature and humidity within the incubator to reenact the cooling and dehumidifying process that eggs would receive naturally from the mother bird leaving the nest. This unique addition to our incubators increases hatch rates. This is extremely important if you hatch goose eggs! 

Egg Turners: Conturn 30 TM
Reduce stress on your eggs with vibration-free egg turners. These calibrated turners ensure high hatch rates and use minimal energy - saving you money! 

Ventilation: AirRoute TM
Our AirRoute TM ventilation system is IP55 certified and uses minimal energy.  The system protects you from voltage changes and offers a first in class protection from dust and humidity. You can rest assure that your system will maintain the same temperature and humidity throughout the whole cabinet.

Humidity: Humisonic TM
CT incubators always keep the internal temperature and humidity to your set parameters. Our HumisonicTM System provides humidity to the incubator when necessary. Just add water to the tank up top! Also, don't forget to fill your bottom pan with water for additional support - as needed.

CT incubators offer 2 alarms:

- High / Low Temperature Alarm (Plus room sensor)
- High / Low Humidity Alarm (Plus room sensor)


To set then hatch eggs, replace the egg turners with your hatching baskets during the last few days.

Best customer service in the U.S you can find

When I received my item the fed ex driver flipped it 180 degrees but with a quick phone to customer service and inspection of my ct180 I had it up and running Ning and seemed to be working fine. Great help on phone with few issues I had and re calibration I was setting my first 3plus eggs in it. I'm looking forward to Many more big hatches this year and the ease of the product. Wish I had 1 more to lighten my long summer of hatching game birds. Big thanks to this wonderful family owned and ran company keep up the great work.
