I hatched with one of those about 20 years ago. got 1/3. The thing was about as good as it looks. I think it was 15.95 which included shipping. 8 years old, with penny rolls. It did get me started raising chickens at a young age though.

If you want to spend less than $20 on an incubator, have a stable ambient room temp. for the incubation period, and like to add/remove foal, tweak  light bulbs, etc...then you can hatch eggs in that thing.

I ordered that thing from gqf back in 1972 along with 6 bob eggs. I got a 0% hatch rate because of many different factors. After that screw up, I secured 6 more bob eggs from a local source, and got a 90% hatch rate.
It can work with various tweaks, but I don't recommend it!

Save your grass cutting money, and drop around $100 on a serious incubator. Just MHO smile

Yea,  what  a waste of money  and  broken hearts.....

Whoever makes  and sells  this     junk  shold  be incarcerated.

Small   cardboard  box with  25W   lightbulb  stuck  in  it  will  get  better  results  if you  pay attention.

And  it  is  almost   FREE.
