Technology Inside

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.

HB incubators offer 2 alarms:

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

Front & Back Access
Full access to your incubator makes cleaning so much easier! Just ask anyone who has tried a similar setup.  We decided to design these incubators in a way that makes simple tasks just that much easier.

Best incubator

Great product, arrived on time without damage and keeps temperature/humidity excellently

Thank you for your review, Logan - The Hatching Time Team

Excellent Incubator

I have had other big name brand cabinet incubators and they were junk compared to this incubator. I have 5 bluetooth thermometers spread out with the eggs in this incubator and I can track temperature curves over time. There is less than one degree difference between the temps (roughly 99.0 to 100.0)…I did the same thing with my previous cabinet models and the range was over three degrees (98.5-103) which obviously caused issues. The automatic humidity system makes life simple, egg turning works as expected and leaves plenty of space between racks for good airflow. When I set the humidity to 65%-70% to hatch in it (with the covers you can buy) I did have a bit of water on the floor on each corner below the incubator so be careful with that. If you are looking for a good cabinet incubator, skip the GQF/Dickey's and get an HB series model, you won’t regret it.

Thank you for your review and recommendation, Patricia. We're proud to bring you the most technologically advanced poultry farming equipment on the market. the Hatching Time Team

HB500 S is the BEST incubator I have ever owned.

This incubator is the best incubator that I have owned in my 51 years of raising poultry and waterfowl. I have owned the following incubators: Sears cabinet, three – GQF’s, Dickey’s, two - Humidaire cabinets, three – Rollex tabletops, one Brinsea cabinet and one Brinsea tabletop. The next best runner up was the Humidaire incubator 300. The first hatch with the Hatching time HB 500 I had 38 hatch out of 40 fertile eggs, the second hatch I had 72 hatch out of 76 fertile eggs and the third hatch since owning this incubator I had 125 hatch out of 132 fertile eggs hatch. The chicks were White Leghorn Large fowl, Black Rosecomb Bantams and White Crested Ducks. I also hatched 38 out of 42 fertile quail eggs that were shipped to me by Southwest Quail farm. I am super pleased and my favorite things about the incubator is the unique steam humidity, the excellent turning and the precision temperate and humidity reading from the control unit. I have checked the calibrated of both and they were right on. I would strongly recommend this incubator to poultry and waterfowl exhibitors!!

Thank you for your review Steven. We are thrilled the HB500 S is the best incubator you have ever owned in 51 years of raising poultry and waterfowl - The hatching Time Team
