Bespoke cabinet incubators

Hi due to the Covid 19 pandemic , having and engineering back ground and interest in poultry , I decided to build 100 egg two tray, digitally controlled cabinet forced air incubators, manual turning the first two I built , I used one as an incubator and the 2nd as a Hatcher , I loaded the incubator with Guinea fowl eggs and on my first hatch achieved a 95% hatch rate , with only one egg that was fertile that didnt hatch and 6 that were un fertile , so anyway the point of this post is I am now in the process of setting up a company producing these incubators " Green Bird Incubators " , they dont look like the expensive incubators that you would pay €990 for , they are built out of quality lasting materials and have a personal living charm and they dont have automatic turning ( hand turn 4 to 5 times a day ) but they work better I think as I never achieved a higher hatch rate then 70% when I owned the branded incubators , but retailing them at €349 they are a very affordable way of hatching 100's of eggs a year , I already have 2 customers who have seen the video evidence of the hatch etc that have commissioned me to build them one , so if anyone has an interest or would like more information please contact me, I will post a information video shortly to my gun dog website listed below

And you advertise them on the website run for free by a buisness thats sells incubators
fairplay to the owner of the site for leaving your post up

yes it is , believe me I have spent a lot of money over past years with the owner of this site 3 incubators and lots of other items , if they wish to take down my post thats their own business and i will fully understand , and I feel sure they dont need anyone to influence their decisions and plus you never know they may even in time sell them , its nice to promote Irish made products and people with some get up and go in times like these , quick question does Ireland have a manufacturer of many poultry products or is everything imported ?

Fair play to you Givendale Spaniels for using your initiative..
I hope it works out for you.
I don't think there are any maufactuer's of poultry products on the whole island for hoobist poultry keepers.

You'd want plenty of time on your hands to be able turn them 4 to 5 times a day that would a big turn off for a lot of people.
