AUTOMATIC TURNER ONLY for your the Bellsouth Egg Incubator you already own. Adding an auto turner to your existing Bellsouth 100 incubator will reduce the capacity to 48 chicken eggs. Proudly made in Australia.
Automatic turning has two advantages over manual or semi-automatic turning. The most common requirement is convenience. Turn on the power, set up the rack, press the test button to check the amount of rotation, and every hour the turner will do the rest. Remember you do need to turn off the turner drive 3 days before hatch. The second reason is not so apparent. Turning the eggs ensures the embryo will rotate in the egg. This ensures the chick access to all the nutrients in the egg. If the nutrient levels are not ideal, automatic turning ensures that all the nutrients are available to the chick, so hatching is better if nutrients are inadequate. Of course addition of vitamins to the breeder diet also helps. The operation of the turner is simple. The gear on the drive motor engages with teeth moulded in the moving incubator tray. The eggs are arranged in neat rows, which should be adjusted for the different sizes of eggs. Turn on the power and the tray will drive back to its home position and stop. Wait 15 seconds and the timer will automatically drive the tray out. The distance is dependent on the control, closckwise means more length of stroke. You can check the stroke anytime by pressing the test button.
