Product Information

Description

This clever and effective sliding humidity shutter and modified water pan cover enables more precise manual adjustment of humidity in the Ovation 28 or 56 Advance and Eco incubators.

Please note it is not required in the Ovation 28 or 56 EX models which have fully automatic humidity control. 

The kit comprises:

  • A modified yellow water pan cover
  • A clear sliding shutter
  • Instructions


Ovation 28 & 56 Advance: simply adjust the sliding shutter and the air vent to control the humidity in the incubator according to your requirements and monitor with the digital humidity display. For the last two days of incubation higher humidity levels are needed for hatching to prevent membranes drying too quickly. Ensure the water pan covers are fitted to prevent chicks drowning.

Ovation 28 Eco (no built-in hygrometer): As a general guide for poultry/game/waterfowl, maintain water in one of the two water pans with the adjustable air vent set to maximum and the water pan shutter set to '1' from the time eggs are set until 2 days before hatching is due - the depth of water doesn't matter. If the incubator is full of parrot eggs the incubator may be run without water for some of the early incubation period. For the last two days of incubation: For all species fill both pans, remove the water pan shutter and set the adjustable air vent to minimum. Higher humidity levels are needed for hatching to prevent membranes drying too quickly. Ensure the water pan covers are fitted to prevent chicks drowning.

Ovation 56 Eco (no built-in hygrometer): As a general guide the shutter is unlikely to be required to achieve recommended humidity levels due to the larger volume of air in the incubator. For the last two days of incubation: for all species fill both pans, remove the water pan shutter and set the adjustable air vent to minimum. Higher humidity levels are needed for hatching to prevent membranes drying too quickly. Ensure the water pan covers are fitted to prevent chicks drowning.

Incubation FAQs

Q - Where can I get advice on hatching eggs, I've never tried it before?

A - All you need is in our Incubation Handbook, which is free to download.

Q - How do I prepare my incubator for hatching?

A - Please refer to Pre-season checks for your incubator, a comprehensive guide to preparing your incubator for hatching.

Q - How long can eggs be stored?

A - Most species may be safely stored for up to 10 days before serious reductions in hatch rates are likely but it is always best to set fertile eggs in an incubator within 24-48 hours of obtaining them. Daily turning of stored eggs also helps maintain hatchability. Store eggs in cool, damp conditions.
