The Turn-X Table Top Incubator is ideal for classroom or home-schooling science projects or for specialized breeding.The see-through design lets the miracle of hatching unfold before you. Both TX6 and TX7 incubators are available with automatic or manual egg turning.
TURN-X is a functional table top incubator with modern precise Solid State Temperature Control. All major parts are made of plastic for easy cleaning.
TURN-X incubators have a clear see-through dome for egg observation during hatching. Fan powered circulating air provides a constant air flow to all parts of the incubator. Temperature control adjustment, humidity adjustment and egg turning can be performed without opening the incubator.
Now available in two models. The TX6 is ideal for hobbyist and school projects while the TX7 is designed for the specialized breeder and educational science programs.
Features and Benefits
For Specialized Breeders and School Science Projects
- 10 Turn Solid State Temperature Control
- Mercury Dry and Wet Bulb Thermometers
- Automatic Egg Turning Standard
All the great TURN-X features PLUS a Ten Turn Solid State Temperature Control designed to operate the TX7 in range of approximately 90° F to 106° F. Each 360° turn of the temperature control covers approximately 1.7° F for precise temperature setting.
Mercury thermometers accurate to +1/2° F are used for both the dry and wet bulb readings. These fine thermometers have a scale from 70° to 110° F graduated in 1/2° F increments. Automatic egg turning each hour is standard if you need high accuracy and precise temperature settings in fractions of a degree, the TX7 is for you.
One Egg Turning Ring of your choice is included in the purchase price of your TX7. Please specify. See Turning Ring chart on this page.
For School Projects, Homeschooling, and Hobbyists
The TX-6 is an ideal incubator for the classroom or the home hobbyist. The see-through design lets the miracle of birth unfold before you. Easy to read spirit carded thermometers are provided for temperature and humidity readings and all adjustments can be made without opening the incubator.
The TX-6 can be purchased with automatic egg turning or the turner may be added later.
One Egg Turning Ring of your choice is included in the purchase price of your TX6. Simply specify when ordering.
Classroom Incubation Kit - Great Value for Teachers
The Classroom Incubator Kit is recommended for teachers who want to hatch chicken eggs in the classroom. This kit comes with all accessories necessary to successfully hatch eggs in school. The TX-6 with automatic egg turner is included so no hand-turning of eggs is required.

TX-6 or TX-7 - Which One is Right for You?
In general, most specialized breeders prefer the greater precision offered by the TX-7 models for their exotic species including Macaws, Cockatoos, and African Grey parrots. The TX6 is primarily chosen by more casual hobbyists and by schools for their spring science programs since they are more likely to hatch chicken, duck, quail, or goose eggs. The Classroom Incubation Kit, which includes the TX-6 with automatic turner, is especially popular with teachers.
SIMILARITIES BETWEEN THESE TWO MODELS:
Included with either unit is fan-forced air flow to provide even heat distribution around the eggs, the optional automatic turner, as well as a set of thermometers. Both units also use your choice of one of the five turnings rings, so a variety of eggs can be incubated and hatched. (Note: The Classroom Incubation Kit comes with the turning room for chicken eggs.)
DIFFERENCES BETWEEN THESE TWO MODELS:
The two major differences are found in the temperature control module and the thermometers that read temperature and humidity. The thermostat of the TX-7 model utilizes a ""Ten Turn"" Potentiometer, whereas the TX-6 model has a "Single Turn" Potentiometer. This means that temperature on the the TX-7 can be adjusted or fine-tuned more easily and accurately for your specific requirements, especially at hatching time when the temperature is usually lowered.
In addition, the thermometers on the TX-7 are a higher grade Mercury thermometer than the small red "Spirit" alcohol thermometers used in the TX-6. Since most TX-6's are used in schools, these are supplied as they are easier for children to read and understand.
