I got this incubator based on price and the reviews of the customer service. Three weeks ago I put in 6 green eggs from my Easter Egger and 7 of the big jumbo eggs I get. No idea what hen lays them but love them and want a flock of large brown/colored egg layers. I watched the air cell and were great except on day 18, air cells seemed small. I dropped humidity way down and candled every night. Saturday.. day 20.. I added water and left for work. I came home to 2 hatched. I got all but two hatched that day and through the night. The next day I had one brown and one green still to hatch. They had pipped.. but that was it. Finally they both hatched and there seemed to be an issue with them drying because by now I had the humidity really high.
I have to say I am a bit excited at 100% hatch rate. The clear top was a lot of fun and the incubator did a great job. When the chicks started hatching, the other meter I had in to measure temp and humidity dropped lower than the incubator was showing by a few degrees. Incuview says 99.5 and the meter said 95. I had a aquarium thermometer in there as well and it seemed to be 99. I am going to invest in some good meters for the temp and humidity as I don't know who is off at this time. But overall I am very pleased with the incubator. After these grow out will invest in some Isbars I have had my eye one. Will not expect this kind of success with shipped eggs.. but at least I feel I have a incubator I can count on.
