We added more brooders to the farm this week. These are so simple to maintain. We used to have heat lamps which were a pain and a fire hazard. Now we don’t have to worry.
Added more cages to the game this week! Still can’t get over how awesome these cages are. I love the customization options.
This is a great improvement to the typical homemade chicken brooder and I’m very happy to have purchased it. A few minor improvement would greatly benefit this brooder: 1) a better deal between the brooder window and the feeding trough and add a removable lip to catch the food the chicks drop immediately inside the brooder; 2) The **** trays also need to extend out a little further on all side with a diagonal lip that extends outward. 3) the brooder should be designed capable of putting the heating controls and water trough on either side of the brooder vs. only the Right side - we had to modify ours so the water was on one side (away from the electrical elements) and the electrical is on the opposite side.
Chicken plucker worked like a champ. Fast. Easy clean up. We did have to hand pluck the tail feathers. The feather chute was a nice feature. Would highly recommend.
I've purchased several products from Hatching Time and I have been very happy with each one. Not only good products, but fast shipping and good customer service. I started out with the 9.5" brooder for my bantam chickens, and bought the 15" recently for my standard chickens since they need more head room sooner and I'm often hatching out both sizes simultaneously. Love the ability to stack the pens for space saving, the grid flooring keeps the chicks/pens clean, they are easy to clean, and clear doors make it easy to keep an eye on the babies. Well worth the investment!
I ordered this thursday and it was on my doorstep saturday by noon...i didnt expect it for another week.. I read a few reviews before purchase, some said it was hard to put together and directions were impossible to interpret.....NOT FOR ME, without looking at video Iassembled 1 section in less than 30 minutes all you need is a screwdriver and I recommend a rubber mallet not a hammer... this thing seems great.. my quail eggs arrive soon...I look forward doing business with this company.
This thing is amazing how it holds a steady temperature and humidity. I’ll know in a few days ho the hatching goes.
Most of my jumbo coturnix eggs fit ok. Had a few that were crowded thou.
Working very well, no issues with chicken's getting used to them. Clean eggs! Had issues with chicken's eating them before, all better now.
The rods were helpful to support the extensions used to raise the brooder at the bottom of my stack. Without the additions of the rods I felt the extensions by themselves might be a bit weak.
Fuse - Fits Brooder Heater (HT03E) and Incubator (CT and HB Series)
Product does take a few hours to assemble, not really of difficulty but more repetitive building. The time was worth it. It is just as described. I have anywhere from 2 to 6 birds in 1 cage. The **** trays are easy to remove and clean, but recommend getting an extra replacment tray while you clean one. Feeding is super easy, less mess and waste. Lasts a few days as does the water supply... need to bleed the air though each water nozzle tho. The Hatching time system works really well for us and we are happy with it. Will buy another and do recommend.
These are great for adding to existing brooders. They make it easy and hassle free to raise your little peepers.
This is by far the best incubator I've ever used, and I've tried alot. My hatch rates have been outstanding. I have hatched chicken eggs and quail eggs at the same time with different hatch dates and the success rate was superior to none. I had the power go out for 7 hours on my last batch of quail eggs while they were in lockdown and I still got a 55% hatch I was amazed that any of them hatched. This is the easiest incubator I have ever used just keep the water tank on the top full of water and walk away it does the rest. So worth the money I wish I would have gotten one years ago, no more getting up in the middle of the night to alarms going off to add water. I can't say enough about this Incubator. If you are looking for a quality superior incubator this is the one for you.
