NEW 3rd Generation Contaq Z7 Raptor Contact Incubator

Experience unbeatable hatch rates with wild species, developed in conjunction with world-leading bird of prey breeders.

Key Features

  • Recreates the brood patch of the parent bird with a warm air-filled plastic diaphragm (skin) which can be inflated and deflated.
  • A moving floor turning system rotates the eggs, either directly using the profile dividers or using rollers (all supplied as standard).
  • The floor integral egg turn counter detects and displays the number of floor movements so you always know your eggs have been turned, even when you are not present.

Easy Control and Monitoring

Through a simple 4 button menu-driven interface and high visibility OLED display the user can control:

  • Incubator Temperature (T1) – of the air temperature above the contact skin
  • Cooling – duration and interval that the skin is retracted from the eggs, simulating the bird leaving the nest.
  • Turning – the interval and duration of egg turning.
  • Temperature Alarm – warns the user if the incubator or room temperature falls outside user-settable limits.
  • Contaq Temperature (T2) – The unique contact thermometer provides a second, continuous and independent measurement of the contact skin temperature (T2) which corresponds to the egg shell temperature – eliminating the need for infra-red ear thermometers (or similar). T2 will normally be slightly lower than T1 depending on room conditions, and it is T2 that the user should set the incubator to.

Comprehensive instructions are supplied to get the best out of this advanced system.

Note: The Contaq Z7 is made to order - please allow 8-10 weeks for delivery.

Incubation FAQs

Q - Where can I get advice on hatching eggs, I've never tried it before?

A - All you need is in our Incubation Handbook, which is free to download.

Q - How do I prepare my incubator for hatching?

A - Please refer to Pre-season checks for your incubator, a comprehensive guide to preparing your incubator for hatching.

Q - How long can eggs be stored?

A - Most species may be safely stored for up to 10 days before serious reductions in hatch rates are likely but it is always best to set fertile eggs in an incubator within 24-48 hours of obtaining them. Daily turning of stored eggs also helps maintain hatchability. Store eggs in cool, damp conditions.
