Setter incubators are used during the first stage of egg incubation. During this stage, the eggs need to be turned at least three times a day, with the industry standard being one turn every hour.
Setter incubators are available with three egg turning options:
Manual – Each egg in the incubator is turned individually.
Semi-Automatic – The eggs are placed on a turning grid. The grid is then turned manually using a push-pull turning system. All the eggs are turned at once using this system.
Fully Automatic – Although an automatic egg turning system increases the price of the incubator, this ensures that the eggs are turned automatically every hour.

Hatcher incubators are used during the last days of the incubation process and this is when the actual hatching of the chick will take place. The actual time when this takes place depends on the bird type.
During the hatching phase of the incubation process, the eggs are not turned as this would interfere with the hatching. Therefore the hatcher incubator has no egg turning system, but temperature and humidity levels still need to be monitored. During the hatching stage, the humidity levels of incubator are increased to assist the chick hatching through the hard egg shell.

What do you do once the chicks have hatched? The next step would be to put the chicks in a brooder to assist with the development of the chick, including the immune system. After a few weeks the birds can either be placed in a cage or chook house. Another option would be have the chickens run free range.
