Your pens are fantastic but the instructions could use. Help
Thank you for the review, Everett - The Hatching Time Team
Relatively simply to assemble, though I highly recommend watch the assembly video, the written directions leave out some important details. That said everything appears to be quality and practicle.
Thank you for the review Toby. The assembly videos are available on youtube and our website - the Hatching Time Team
Quail are now 4 weeks old and just moved from the brooder to the grow out cage tier. Overall, pleased with how the system has worked. Temperature consistency with the brooder heater is good, with room for chicks to get out from under heat when they desire. The cage is easy to clean. We are already thinking about expanding and adding another tier with our next batch of chicks! Only downside I found was the same switch controls the light and heater in the brooder - but this is easily fixed using a smart bulb.
Thank you for the review, Kimberley. Glad you are pleased overall with how the system has worked for you. The Hatching Time Team
Simple Design and gets the job done! I ordered the 12 pack for my CT60 and they work great. Highly recommend
Wonderful incubator! build quality is great and comes with everything you need. The only complaint I have is with the Large water reservoir. During the forming process they left a large portion of plastic on the bottom not allowing it to sit flush, and the whole drilled in the side for the hose connection is so large the rubber gasket doesn't properly seal. I was able to fix this easily and doesn't change the performance of the incubator itself. Wonderful Product!
I bought these to collect eggs initially. I now use them for many different things. They are great for transport and deliverying of chicks to stores or other farms. They fit together like leggos, so there is no collapsing or sliding off when carrying or transport. These also are great for storage of root, bulbs, and tubes...IE garlic and potatoes before planting. These are great multi use baskets.
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’m extremely happy with my recent purchase of Jumbo Quail flooring. Now, I don’t have to clean every three days and the smell has gone down. Earlier it seems that they were walking with their **** all over them and it smelled gross and they would have bumblefoot, if I didn’t clean them for a week, now I haven’t cleaned the cage over a month and the cage looks clean. Now, I only empty the **** tray every week, this has helped with reducing the burden of cleaning and it reduced the smell significantly. This feature has significantly helped us. Thank you for the jumbo Quail flooring. Only regret I have is that I didn’t know early on when purchased my initial cages.
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!
