Just curious when you mentioned the humidity margin being inaccurate by 10%, did you mean it being higher than reading on the bator, or lower than on the bator?

Depends, it varies.  I have a known and tested hygrometer and it would be off 10% high or low.  The temperature was way off too.

 

Just an offshore cheap imitation.  OK for cheap eggs.

        We have a Janoel 48 ( or a knock off unbranded model ) well 2 of them and must say i love them. Temp and humidity have been accurate and we have had a 90% hatch rate with our welsh harliquins. I did take a bit to get use to and our first hatch was only about 5% but that was ok for the first go.

        I know there are some out there that will not buy things made in china, they say they are cheap made and poor quality but it is so not true. and i think if you decide not to buy one for that reason then you are being silly. Alot of breeders i know brought one as a backup machine and most are now using them as there main incubator.

Please don't purchase a Janoel or generic off brand 48/60/96 incubator. Huge waste of time and eggs. Absolute garbage.

i have the janoel 24 and i love it thinking about the 48. I notice it has more indicators for temp and humidity ant the turner is different. with the 24 my lowest hatch was 16 of 24 (4 not fertal) best hatch was 21.
