Please Beware of Purchasing Low Cost 'Made in China' Incubators
British Trading Standards investigate imported egg incubators: A number of low cost Chinese made egg incubators have appeared on the market in recent months, sold mainly on eBay but increasingly on Amazon and other poultry websites raising concerns about their electrical safety. Egg incubators involve mains electricity, heating and water and are used in the home, sometimes by children and these factors mean a poorly designed incubator can pose particular hazards, hence Trading Standards' interest. Many of these products do not comply with European electrical safety standards and could prove dangerous. British Trading Standards have assessed a selection of these machines and are currently contacting importers of any equipment which doesn't comply with EU safety regulations.
Bought this for a member of the family who has hens and was sick of moving eggs round in a carton....very well received but the hens have laid fewer eggs since she got it!
I'm sure that wasn't related to the gift which was warmly received.

I did lots of research and found Appletons to be the only place I could by a slaughter cone or as in America a kill cone. I want to humanly cull and process my chickens and this was what I need to get the dead done.They were quick to answer my questions. Easy to find online. And I received my cone in just a few days. I can highly recommend.

Ordering process was painless, delivery service on time and undamaged. Very happy with service provided by Appletons including the very helpful advice when asked for (questions of coverings etc.). Cat enclosure we purchased (3x2x2) took a bit of time to set up and the end product is excellent. Cats cannot escape despite their Houdini attempts! Very happy with our purchase and we will be coming back to buy another 1m extension and covering next year. Great that we can add to this over time as well.

At last a super easy means of keeping my little flock within bounds when I need to. Delivery was next day and Fiona could not have been more helpful.

In the past I've let my Hens sit on their own eggs with mixed results and some fatalities. This year we decided to try Appleton's fertilized eggs both to acquire additional heritage breeds but also to raise the health and strength of the flock (most of my old girls were rescues). I am delighted with the quality of the eggs. They all hatched within a 48 hr period. The chicks are all healthy and growing strong - not a timid or anxious one among them. Highly recommended.
