Wanted - incubator to rent / incubating services

Hi all,

After an incubator to rent for a hatch in the BOP - I don't incubate often enough to buy one. Alternatively I can deliver the eggs to you if you don't want to lend out your incubator. BOP preferably.

Thanks Jim

Hi Jim,

what about a broody hen? They're cheap to buy, and raise the clutch for you. A Wyandotte or Silkie are good bets.

People don't like to rent out their incubators, especially not now during the height of the breeding season. If you wait until March or April you might strike it lucky. But they are fickle machines, not at all sturdy. One whack and it's no longer working.

Some people have big incubators and are happy to hatch some eggs for you - usually for a fee. Have a look at the breeders directory at www.rarebreeds.co.nz If you find someone close to your area why not give them a call. But again - space is at a premium at this time of year.
