About Us

Geflügel - Wir unterstützen Sie bei der Brut und Zucht mit JAEGER Kunstglucken

The family com­pany Jäger & Pfrom­mer Brut­ap­pa­rate e.K. was foun­ded in 1957 in Ger­many. The foun­der, Karl Jäger, is also con­si­de­red the foun­der of modern incu­ba­tion tech­no­logy. Today, Ben­ja­min Dress­bach, in the 4th genera­tion, leads the company.

Our phi­lo­so­phy

Since 1957 we have set our­sel­ves the task of manu­fac­tu­ring high qua­lity and also rea­son­ably priced incubators.

The JAEGER Arti­fi­cial Hat­cher Type FB-50 & JAEGER Arti­fi­cial Hat­cher Type FB-80 have been the first choice in count­less bree­der cir­cles for more than 60 years.

We want your hatching and bree­ding to be a success

Jäger & Pfrom­mer Brut­ap­pa­rate e.K. has had suc­cess­ful coö­pe­ra­tion part­ners for years, who work tog­e­ther for a purpose.

With our part­ners, today’s Hat­chery Tech­no­logy deve­lo­ped into an important indus­try for bree­ders world­wide, whose common goal is to be able to breed spe­cies-appro­priate under opti­mal con­di­ti­ons and care sustainably.
