It's funny....my folks live with me. I had bought eggs to stick under my broody hen, broody hen failed, and had no way to save the eggs. That night, my dad came home with an LG (with a fan). I set eggs, then set more eggs. When we were close to needing to lock down the first batch, he came home with another LG, no fan. (Neither incubator did I ask for) We successfully hatched a bunch of chicks. We broke the 2nd bator putting in a fan. I bought an Incuview. I hate it. But, I still use it - even though I call it my death bator.
I finally broke down and bought a Brinsea 40. I had a GREAT hatch in that. Hatch ended, I put in more eggs. My LG is full (41 eggs in a tray that holds 39) with 3 different staggered batches. I asked out loud, I want to use the Brinsea for a hatcher, since the humidity is so well controlled, but I don't have room to move out the eggs I just started, how am I going to handle that? My dad said "buy another Brinsea". My mom said NO!!!!!!!!!! Sell 40 or so of the chicks you have already hatched and MAYBE get another and ONLY if you get rid of the LG and Incuview.
My daughter LOVES watching the chicks hatch. Loves watching them run around in the incubator, but loses all interest once they move out of the brooder. That tells me to keep hatching!
So, I have one enabler,one enabling encourager and one sane person advising to me. I see another Brinsea in my future....
