Has anyone used the Rite Farm 3600 Pro Digital incubator? If so what were your results? I've got a Farm Inovators but temperature doesn't seem very consistent.

can't say about their table top models but have a few locals that have their cabinet models and they've had all sorts of issues with failing parts. one of the Pro-528 has required the control panel replaced twice and now the main fan all in less then a year and another one they sold after the second time of replacing the control board in a very short time. if their top of the line cabinets are this bad, i'd hate to take a chance on their lower end models myself.
for a table top incubator the Hova-bator's are hard to beat.
EDIT: i will add tho that the farmer with the control panel and fan issues has stated the customer service has been excellent from them but the thought of loosing 500+ eggs due to a failed part is hard to make up for in customer service.
We are on day 7 with the new incubator, and so far it is working good. temp stays between 99-100 and recovers very quickly. The humidity is up and down but I think this has a lot to do with the weather here in south Louisiana. We add a little and I'm only talking about 2 tablespoons of water when it gets to the low 30's and keep it on average around 45%. We set 36 eggs and I candled at day 5 and all the eggs or doing something. The lighter eggs have embryos moving the darker eggs are hard to see but you can tell there is a mass in there. We will candle again on day 10.
