Our quail would not use the standard drip water system. So we added the water cups that hatching time sells. They continuously leaked and we contacted the company several times, and they would not give any sort of refund. Also, the door latches are poor quality, and popped open several different times. I had to bunjie the doors to keep the quail from getting out. Don’t waste your money with this company! Build it yourself or buy quality like from Wynola Ranch
This incubator is excellent. I had a 90% hatch rate and absolutely no issues. I highly recommend this is you are even slightly nervous about the process. Customer service is excellent. HatchingTime is my go-to for taking care of my peeps.
Seems to be sturdy and well built with detail. Will update review when I use it.
The best thing for your water tank , set up to a rain water barrel never worry about keeping your birds watered .
Can’t say enough, watch the assembly video then went to the task of assembling the cage , very simple went well , looks good, looks very easy to keep clean. Can’t wait to put bird in it. Also great service
I had to order this to replace one that froze (my fault for not moving the quail cage to a warmer location during freezing weather). I found it basically impossible to get the water cups back on without taking the cage apart. It would have been doable if they snapped on from the bottom.
The cage wasn’t as hard to assemble as others have said. Just watch the recommended YouTube assembly video- it helps a lot. We had an issue getting the top rack on but after a phone call to support we realized we put the side frames on wrong. Now everything fits and the waterers don’t leak like others we have. Expensive but great product.
Great lid, fast shipping
Needed a replacement for part broken in shipping, and Hatching Time quickly replaced it. Customer service is great!
Over time, one of our latches became loose. Naughty quail learned this and became escape artists at night. Ordered this replacement, it shipped fast - now no more escapees!
Needed some extra tubing to rearrange stack (brooders and cages have different length hose). Shipping was fast, tubing fit perfectly - no complaints!
Added this to my already existing rack to make it bigger. Assembly took some time but, fairly simple to get together. Love that the eggs roll out clean and easy to see birds and eggs. This has cut down chore time in half (or more)!
These brooders are well laid out. Heaters function well. The mats are interchangeable (so I pull out one a week when it comes time to wean birds off heat). I find that you need to wait till at least day 5 to move baby quail into these brooders. Otherwise the chicks get stuck in the feeder tray and get too cold (and die) - they are not too smart. After day 5 or so, they are big enough to figure it out! These brooders save me a lot of time cleaning, because all you have to do is pull out black mats, spray them off, and put back in. No more messy pine shavings!
Order my brooder and it arrived 4 days earlier than expected! Took some time to put together, but not very difficult. Had a broken piece in shipping, emailed the company and they shipped out a replacement within a day. Very excited to get my chicks inside and try it out!
Great addition to the brooder for newborn chicks. Definitely a plus!!!
