Hello.Sorry it took this long to respond. Xmas and New Years while having to work. Ive had litlte time for my litlte chicks.
I do make time to feed them early in the morning and pet them a bit so rthey dont forget me.
The incubator was great for me, like i said before. This was my 1st time and learnent alot from this forum ( thanks again to everyone who helped).
My problem was 18 eggs werent fertil. So that left me with 30. Of these 30 , 8 developed, but never hatched. Of the remaining 22, 3 didnt make it. One got his head stuck in a space in the floor. Another one didnt get out of the eggshell. The 3rd one had a leg problem and after a week couldnt stand up so i had to ...
But in all im very happy with it. Some here at home said, ah maybe you should of bought a smaller. I said, no. With the numbers i said wrote above i would have less them 10 live birds. Thats just not worth my time.
So im planing another incubation. Trying to find places who ship fertil eggs and maybe in February ill have another batch.
My incubator cost around 50euros. And the shipping cost another 55-60 euros, Sent to me by express mail. Didnt ask for it, but well worth it. A 24 incubator here costs 200 to 250 euros. If it doesnt break down im happy.
The thing you need to know is do you have space for 40-48 chicks? If so go ahead and get this model or one like it.
Hope i helped you. I have some videos of this incubator. Everyday day from day1 to hatch day.
