Borotto® Lumia 16 Egg Incubator
Professional incubator performance in a small machine. This 16 chicken egg capacity incubator automatically monitors and adjusts heat and turns the eggs for you! Remove eggs from the turning cradles to use the unit as a hatcher.
The Borotto® Lumia 16 Incubator with Humidity Pump (Item #540255 below) draws water from an external source, such as a 2 liter bottle, to maintain proper humidity.
Plastic surfaces feature an antimicrobial additive, preventing harmful bacterial growth during operation to protect your hatch.
Successfully hatch eggs from: Chickens, pheasants, guinea fowl, quail, partridges and ducks. Eggs from some species of goose, turkey and peafowl may also be used. Very large eggs will NOT fit in the turner.

Always choose eggs suitable for incubation. If possible, choose eggs that have not traveled by mail. Why? Because eggs that are closed inside packaging do not breathe and may have experienced excessive travel stress, vibration, and temperature changes.
Do not incubate eggs dirty with fecal material, as during incubation the temperature and humidity will lead to the establishment of bacterial flora. This can contaminate all the eggs, causing infections to the embryos and resulting in premature death during hatching.
Choose eggs of normal shape (they must not be elongated, spherical, undulated or with any other malformation).
The room’s relative humidity should be between 20%–80% when using the SIRIO Humidity Pump, or between 50%–75% without.
Borotto® incubators are designed for the simple incubation of most poultry eggs. Very large eggs will NOT fit in the turner. Temperature and humidity calibration is performed at the factory and is not user-adjustable. Please read the specifications of the incubator to make sure it will work for your situation.

Have to admit the temperature was a little tough to manage but humidity was easy. Had 73% hatch rate with quail eggs my first time ever hatching eggs so needless to say I’m pretty pleased. The incubator was missing an adapter for the cord but Premier 1 customer service was great and had the part sent to me.

Highly recommend! First time incubating eggs. I picked up a few different incubators and this one is by far my favorite. Very easy to use, simple to follow instructions, received item quickly, temp and humidity properly calibrated. It’s a well built machine.

Just got this in for raising quail. Haven’t incubated in it yet but I did a test run and it held temp like a champ! Would recommend!

A successful hatch of Beltsville Turkey Poults. I am using this machine as a hatcher so I can do more frequent batches at shorter time intervals for the eggs. Initial incubation in my 24’s or 49 then transfer to the 16 at lockdown. It really is plug and play.

Completely stopped maintaining temperature and humidity during second day of hatching lockdown. Warming up an old styrofoam incubator to hopefully save the hatch. Very disappointed in what should be the best of the best.
