In order to serve you best this book is written as if we are having a conversation in which I help you solve the problems you could encounter during the construction of the incubator and incubation procedure. It is not meant to be a “theoretical” academic essay that’s boring and tedious. All you need to know is contained in this e-book. I’m sure you’ll understand that the information is worth its weight in gold. It is a step-by-step guide of how to really make it happen. Thank you for investing in this book and I look forward to hearing about your success stories.
Some years ago I visited the factory of one of my European incubator suppliers whose incubators were imported and marketed by us at that time in my country. This company was also manufacturing small electrical heaters and home appliances and had a fairly good reputation.
After half an hour or so of discussions regarding business in general and the marketing of their products, suddenly the director of the manufacturing company (an Electrical Engineer) caught me by surprise by asking:
-Mr. Mavridis tell me please; do our incubators really hatch chicken? We tried to incubate chicken eggs twice in it but without success.
This question was a really unpleasant surprise for me.
It proved that they were dealing with the incubator manufacturing in the same way they would deal with an electrical home appliance! They have not even field tested it!
The Incubator, according to my beliefs, is not just an electrical appliance; it is a life generator. It’s the product of careful engineering adapted in such a way as to serve the creation of new life. This is and always has been my personal philosophy.
Returning home, a big batch of incubators that we had ordered from this supplier was already in my warehouse. (The third batch since the beginning of our cooperation).
Most of these 50 egg capacity incubators from this third batch broke down after 3 to 6 months of use. But we had already signed a 1 year guarantee for each of our customers. Since we keep our promises you can imagine what happened!! Their incubators’ bad operation proved to be caused by the replacement of a specific electronic component on their electronic thermostat board with a cheaper (possibly scrap quality) one. This helped them save the “huge” amount of 0.5 € from the manufacturing cost of each one of their incubators…
If you, like me, are one of those particular people that do not like to compromise the quality of their equipment, what would you do? At this point I have already made up my mind. I decided that I had to share my knowledge and expertise regarding the incubators with my fellow hobbyists & customers and teach them how to avoid the pitfalls in constructing a D.I.Y. incubator. I would teach them how to do it right from the beginning to the end.That’s how and why this book was born.
• You have bought and used a cheap incubator whose hatching rate was low (and this is meant in a very polite way) and broke down after 2-3 months of use. • You are tired of the empty promises that the incubator sellers use, only to make the deal and you end up with a machine that is not really covered by guarantee, service and spare parts. • You have repeatedly “lost” valuable batches of eggs because of an incubator failure or improper management. • You have dreamed to own an incubator that is build to last, an incubator that stands up to your expectations in terms of effectiveness, ease of construction, reliability, easy servicing and cleaning. • You have considered buying a professional grade incubator like those high-end, expensive incubators used by professionals but you don't want or you can’t afford spending thousands of dollars on it. • You have tried to D.I.Y. your own incubator but the results were disappointing. You have been looking for a cost effective way to build a professional grade egg incubator that will guarantee you a high hatching rate. • You have noted that your adventure in the egg incubation world had a big cost until now. This cost is not related to the economic terms only, but also to the time spent, frustration, looses and accidents. • You feel that it is time to do something about it. • You feel that it’s time to leave the past behind and look forward to a brighter future regarding the personal egg incubation. To D.I.Y. an incubator backed by science and with proved efficiency on the field. • If yes, then you've come to the right place.

• Will help you unleash your D.I.Y. skills and your creativity. These will be backed up by solid expert scientific knowledge and practical advice that will help you to “do it right”. • Will guide you to easily put together a flexible and fully automatic 50-150 eggs capacity forced air egg incubator that is fully equipped (automatic temperature , humidity, egg turning & automatic air exchange). • Will help you build a state of the art, sophisticated, reliable & controllable machine built with high quality, easy to find components, which will serve you for years, at a fraction of the cost of the expensive commercial ones. And all this without spending a fortune on it. • It will teach you the one thing that you absolutely must not do when choosing an automatic humidification system. • Will present you multiple solutions to choose from when constructing each incubator system. And it will help you clarify which is the solution that suits your needs best. • Will keep your peace of mind because you will build an incubator that really works. It is not just simple theory but a real field proven design. This design has been successfully put into practice by our customers at least 200 times. • Will teach you the “puzzle effect” in the incubation procedure. • Will provide at your fingertips all the important information & details that any incubator DIY-er should know before starting to build: CAD plans, electrical CAD plans, separate incubation sheets for all species of farm poultry and much more. This information is easily accessible, easy to combine and navigate (by using the internal and external useful links contained in the book).

I am a second generation veterinarian and the founder of Mavridis Zootechniki Ltd., a company that provides quality veterinary service in Serres, a region of Greece, as well as veterinary and animal nutrition consultation national wide in Greece. The company also markets a full range of small poultry equipment and accessories for hobbyists and professional poultry farmers and manufactures agricultural electronics (specialized incubator thermostats and hygrostats), as well as all kinds of small and mid-sized incubators, ranging from 50 to 1000 eggs, drum poultry pluckers and small cereal mills.
Because theoretical knowledge without practice is useless, I was fortunate enough to acquire the practical knowledge first, while I was working as a farmer in our family farm since the early age of 12. The incubation of poultry eggs was and still remains one of my main interests since 1975.
