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

The ET 12 digital incubator from River Systems® is designed to hatch hens 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 handle 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 requirements.

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.
  • 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 tilting handle.
  • 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.
  • Upgradable Egg Turning: The machine can easily be upgraded to 'automatic egg turning' by purchasing the ET egg turner.

NOTE: The ET 12 Egg Incubator is 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.

Really pleased with my new incubator and excellent service from The incubator shop. I like the way the eggs are held in a cradle and its very easy to turn them without opening the lid.
Angus Mackenzie
Nicely constructed, previous cheapie from another supplier got condensation in the works first time out. The instructions are unusually good. Hatching of our first batch should be today/tomorrow...
