Borotto® Lumia 8 Egg Incubator
Expert performance for homestead flock expansion. This 8 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 8 Incubator with Humidity Pump (item #540253 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.
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.

So far so good. Incubator is clean and easy to use. I did not get the humidity pump but its easy enough to use without. I have a humidity monitor on it, and it’s been very steady.

I have been searching for a durable, easy to operate incubator. This is it for smaller batches. Very easy to set up and use.

It’s easy to use and user friendly. It’s suitable for goose eggs hatching too because of the headroom space in the pod.

High quality product compared to other incubators I have. However, it only fit my small size goose eggs, the large eggs hit the top. It maintains temperature well and comes back up to temperature quickly after the lid is taken off and replaced. The unit is quiet, I keep it in my office and no one can hear it when I am on conference calls. It’s early in my hatch so I will know more in a couple weeks.
