The science of artificial incubation is one that can only be perfected with practise, often with common species such as certain breeds of fowl. Artificial incubation can be a very rewarding experience especially when successful with the incubation of more difficult species such as the members of the psittascine (parrots and cockatoos) family.

There are many good reasons for putting in the time and effort required for artificial incubation. The removal of eggs from the nest will often stimulate the hen to relay, thus increasing egg production. This can be beneficial for conservation efforts when trying to increasing species numbers of endangered species or simply for breeders whose wish to increase their chick production. Artificial incubation can help to control certain avian diseases such as Psittacosis and Psittacine Beak and Feather. The combination of the right knowledge and equipment can result in many years of further learning and enjoyment. Contact us for further information or advice. The science of artificial incubation is one that is only perfected with experience and the right equipment.

We have been researching the critical issues associated with parrot incubation over the last 15 years. Much has been written about parrot egg incubation, which we believe is false. We are now able to artificially incubate parrot eggs far more successfully than the parrots themselves. Our understanding of the critical issues is such that the vast majority of our eggs hatch with out any assistance from us.
