The Brinsea Ova-easy incubators are fantastic incubators for those looking to get more out of an incubator with increased hatching capabilities.

There are 3 ways to hatch in an Ova-Easy, the first being as we call in all in all out. You set all your eggs at once and they all hatch at the same time in situate on the shelves within the incubator. This can be done in the full range of Ova-Easy incubators, Ova-easy 100, 190, 380 ad 580. You set your eggs and once you come to the final 3 days you turn the egg turning off, level the shelves, remove the dividers, place the lid on the tray and increase the humidity and wait for them to hatch.

The second way is multistage incubation. You set batches of eggs at different points normally roughly a tray a week apart. Once that batch comes to the final 3 days, you move the eggs into the hatching tray and place into the bottom of the incubator, this is possible in the Ova-easy 190 and 380 incubators. When you move the eggs into the bottom of the incubator you then replace the tray you removed with a fresh new batch. At this point you have two options, dry hatch so you don’t increase the humidity which many breeders do and find it a very successful way of hatching especially in areas where the humidity is naturally already quite hight . Or you increase the humidity setting, this wont effect the other eggs you still have turning. Humidity works on an average so it doesn’t have to be exactly on 45% or 50% until hatching, it will be at a higher level for 3 days the rest of the time it will be at the lower level as long as you set your eggs far enough apart, but this is also where egg weight loss comes in useful you may find you don’t need to increase the humidity depending on the weight loss.

The final way is to use a separate hatcher. You can use a hatcher whether you are doing all in all out or multi-stage incubation. Remove the eggs and place them in a separate incubator for hatching time. This gives you full control of the temperature and humidity without the worry of effecting your other eggs. Ideally it Is always best practice to use a separate incubator to hatch in.
