Humisonic TM Humidity Control: Ensuring precise humidity control, the HB500S's HumisonicTM System maintains the internal humidity according to your set parameters. Simple to use, just add water to the tank above, and for additional support, fill the internal bottom pan with water as needed. 

AirRoute TM Ventilation System: The HB500S is equipped with the AirRoute TM ventilation fan system, which is IP55 certified and uses minimal energy. This advanced system offers protection from voltage fluctuations and first-class defense against dust and humidity. You can rest assured that your incubator will maintain consistent temperature and humidity throughout.

TurnX TM Egg Turners - Vibration-Free and Energy-Efficient: The incubator boasts TurnX TM egg turners, reducing stress on your eggs with their vibration-free operation. These precisely calibrated turners turn a full 45 degrees each side, ensuring high hatch rates while using minimal energy, thereby saving you money. 

Innovative Active Periodic Cooling (APC): The HB500S features the groundbreaking Active Periodic Cooling technology, a first in the market. Mimicking the natural incubation process where birds leave the nest, allowing eggs to cool and release moisture, APC adjusts the temperature and humidity within the incubator to replicate this natural cooling and dehumidifying process. This unique feature is especially crucial for hatching goose eggs, significantly increasing hatch rates.

Advanced Alarm System for Monitoring: The HB500S features two advanced alarms for high/low temperature and high/low humidity, each with a room sensor. These alarms enable you to monitor both the internal and external conditions, ensuring optimal incubation conditions at all times.

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: TurnX 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
HB 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.

- High / Low Temperature Alarm (Plus room sensor)

What voltage is it?


Can it be powered via solar?

Our incubators cannot be powered via solar.

How does the incubator turn my eggs?

With our HB models, the setter trays are placed in an anodized aluminum frame. The frame will turn 45 degrees in each direction, slowly, over the course of one hour. Even with the tilt of the frame, your eggs are safe to set and will not fall out of the tray.

Amazing quality and even better customer service!

I'm very impressed at the quality of the incubator, along with ease of setup. This is my first cabinet incubator and was torn between a few different options on the market. I chose Hatching Time over others due to high recommendations from quail and chicken breeders. Everyone also spoke highly of their customer service, which I get to testify myself, is first class. My turnX actuator wiring was separated upon unboxing, whether it happened during their box up, in transit or when I was opening it, didn't matter they sent a replacement no questions asked and in a very timely manner. Doreen was incredibly helpful and responsive! Thank you and we plan on purchasing more incubators or hatchers from you because of what we have experienced already.

Thank you for the review, Vinny. We work hard to provide the best customer service and look forward to sharing your comments with our team - The Hatching Time Team
