I really don't know what they all are. 2 Black copper marans for sure. 1 Ameracuna and I think the rest are barred rocks.

Is the loss of your chicks due to the incubator or the eggs.?

Did you have challenges with the humidity? My temperature is right on but I have to keep adding a tiny bit of water about every 4 hours and when I wake in the mornings it is in the 30% humidity. I'm on day three.

The humidity was pretty steady for us. Almost no water the first 18 days kept the humidity around 40-50%. Filled all the trays with water after day 18 and it held 60-65% till hatch. I think it works great.

Any more to add on these incubators? These are running about the same price as the sportsman. I would really like something I could do staggered hatches in. Any advice welcome.

I just bought one of these. I ran it for a few days to find out the temperatures. Definitely fluctuates a lot but once you find the right temp it's pretty good. I set mine at 98 and it's always between 98-100.5. As for the humidity reader I'm not sure yet as I have to change my hygrometer into this one. I set 90 quail eggs so I'll post the outcome in about a month. Good luck!
