Introducing the ET Super 12 Egg Incubator, this incubator is designed to be easy to use and features a high-quality digital temperature display.

The digital incubator ET 12 by River Systems® is designed to hatch hen-eggs as well as pheasant, guinea fowl, quail, partridge, grey partridge, rock partridge, turkey, goose, mallard, all breeds of duck, peacock, pigeon, exotic birds and birds of prey. Its capacity is up to 12 medium/large eggs or 48 small eggs (e.g. quail).

ET 12 is designed to be simple and straightforward to use, at the same time offering innovative technical solutions and high reliability.

The egg tilting motor oscillates the egg tray from the outside, thus avoiding lifting the lid and disperse heat and humidity.

It is, therefore, suitable for both beginners and those with small and medium-sized breeding.

Main features

  • Inspection window, the lid is equipped with two inspection windows that allow the user to follow all stages of the incubation from the outside.
  • Automatic egg turning with a swinging egg tray. The eggs to be incubated are housed in a tray with a pivoting alveolus system: the egg tray tilting is adjusted by the egg turning motor.
  • The egg cradle allows you to accommodate both small eggs (up to 4 quail eggs) and large eggs, like goose eggs.
  • Floor for hatching: The floor is an accessory included in the incubator to ease the birth of the chicks in the last phase of incubation.
  • The external openings are used to fill the water tanks without opening the incubator, thus avoiding the dispersion of heat and humidity.
  • Digital display: It is possible to adjust the temperature from 30 ° C to 40 ° C (with a precision probe to set the temperature with variations of 0.1 ° C) simply by pressing the + and – keys.

The ET Super 12 Egg Incubators are supplied with Factory Fitted UK plugs.

Questions & Answers

What’s the difference between manual, semi-automatic and automatic turning incubators?

In a ‘manual’ incubator, eggs must be turned ‘manually’, meaning you must turn each egg by hand usually around 3-4 times a day.

Automatic incubators will automatically turn the eggs for you. On some automatic machines, you can set the timings of the turns, as well as the duration or angle of the turn. This can be important if you’re incubating specialist birds such as falcons or exotic birds.

Semi-automatic incubators don’t require you to turn each egg by hand, but equally there is no motor to turn them for you either. So, normally semi-automatic machines have a handle or lever that you push and pull to roll or rock all the eggs at the same time. Or, some incubators have specially shaped bases that allow you to tilt the entire machine back and forth.

Please note that ‘manual’ and ‘automatic’, when used in the item name, only refers to the egg turning type. It does not relate to the humidity control or to any other feature.


What does the term ‘fully automatic’ mean? Does it mean automatic turning, automatic humidity control and automatic temperature control?

If you see the term ‘ automatic’ in the item name, for example, the “Rcom 20 Max Incubator (Automatic)” or in the description, such as, “the ovation 28 Advance is a fully automatic incubator”, it generally refers to the egg turning; meaning the egg turning is fully automatic. ‘Automatic’ or ‘fully automatic’ does not refer to the humidity control or temperature control.

All incubators include a built-in thermostat, even those that do not have a digital display. So, temperature is always controlled automatically.

Mrs Anne Gibson
very happy with my little 12 egg incubator, I was unsure what to purchase as the choice was extensive, but my friend had good success withthe same machine.

Millie Thornley
Very pleased with this incubator. It's neat, compact and is doing a perfect job.
Heather Macleod
Just hatching our first eggs in this super little incubator. Must be up to the job! And delivered so speedily! We have the ET manual incubator as well, bought a few years ago - both models are excellent!
This is a fantastic incubator for the money. Good instructions. I actually prefer not having a humidity readout. All of my viable marans eggs hatched even though they were badly shipped eggs. Marans eggs can be very tricky. Followed instructions which are good. The egg turner is a brilliant design. Advise using anti-slip matting over hatch tray though otherwise slippy. very pleased.
