Many introductory incubators come with a capacity of under 10 eggs, which is great unless you decide further down the line that you want to hatch more eggs at once. From here your options are limited if you are lucky you might be able to buy an upgrade for your current incubator but these are often clunky and fiddly to attach. Alternately you could buy a whole new increased capacity incubator.
However, these options are often prohibitively expensive. There is however, a third alternative, to use a cheaper mid-sized incubator in conjunction with your current one. This option comes with a number of benefits which I Hatcher is you through as I review the Yosoo 10 Chicken Eggs Mini LED Digital Incubator Poultry Hatcher. I have chosen this incubator as for me; it meets the needs of an incubator for someone with experience who is not looking to spend too much on an upgrade.
Criteria- How to choose a good product
So, what are the criteria for a good incubator for someone looking to upgrade their current setup? The first thing to look at is the price. If you do have budget restrictions the Yosoo 10 Chicken Eggs Mini LED Digital Incubator Poultry Hatcher is a good choice as if offers a lot of the features that most other mid range incubators have but at a fraction of the price. Which brings us to the second criteria to look out for, features, The Yosoo 10 Chicken Eggs Mini LED Digital Incubator Poultry Hatcher is a mixed bag here. While it certainly does come equipped with a lot of the features you would expect from a higher end incubator, it does also have a number of shortcomings.
As we will see later some of these shortcomings might be too much if you are a first-time incubator buyer however if you are comfortable using incubators and are willing to look past these the Yosoo 10 is quite a deal. The final criteria that is important for those looking to upgrade their current setup is size. Chicken Eggs Mini Incubator is a remarkably small incubator for the number of eggs it can hold. This means that you can comfortably store this incubator alongside another even if you do have restricted storage facilities.
The next thing you will end up casting your attention to is the instructions. Unfortunately, these are quite poorly translated and new users have found them to be quite confusing. It is for this reason that those with more incubator experience will have an easier time using the Yosoo 10 Chicken Eggs Mini LED Digital Incubator Poultry Hatcher. One past this we can finally look at what is inside the incubator. For the most part the Yosoo 10 contains what you would expect from an incubator of this size, the first being fan assisted temperature control.
Because of its small size the Yosoo 10’s fan should be able to deliver consistent temperature to all of the eggs. However, some users have noted that the temperature can fluctuate, so it is important to keep an eye on this incubator. A feature that will help you with this is the Yosoo 10’s alarm system and a built in display. The incubator has a digital display so you can make sure the temperature and humidity of the eggs does not fluctuate too much and an alarm system so if either of these do become dangerous to the eggs you can make adjustments. Unfortunately, the Yosoo 10 only comes with a manual egg turning system and the digital display only shows celsius, but for the money, you couldn’t really expect any more than what the Yosoo 10 Chicken Eggs Mini LED Digital Incubator Poultry Hatcher already offers.
