I caught it in time and still have a pipped egg in there tweeting away. I will be looking into a Hovabator and then contacting someone about the LG incubator. Again, super thankful for your input :-).

I wish you the best of luck!

Did you have a hatch? We just went into lockdown yesterday and are having or have had similar issues along the way with the 9300. Keeping our fingers crossed. We purchased a fan to help with the next run on April 9th.

We had two hatch out of over a dozen eggs. We then bought a 1588 Hovabator and it has worked great with a 99% hatch rate even with shipped eggs! I would highly recommend getting this incubator and switching them over even on lockdown or for your next batch and get your money back for the little giant. The extra $50 or so is worth it in the end. I hope it goes well for you.

thanks. We'll definitely be considering it, especially since the next hatch will have some premium priced eggs
