Is Preset for bird eggs. Simply plug in and add water and eggs. Comes with an electronic thermostat that regulates temperature in the 99.5 Degree F. Top has a large clear plastic window for best viewing of the incubation and hatching process. Picture window is double plate plastic with air space insulation to help eliminate moisture buildup, which would obstruct viewing. Large viewing area is ideal for classroom work, science projects, advertising and promotional work, and for group observation of the hatching processes. Dimensions: 18" x 18" x 9 1/2", 110 Volt AC
Cons - the controller sucks on our two but we work around it.
We have two so that one is the 1-18 days and one is for lockdown. Works well for us that way. We also live where there is high humidity here in the bay area. So don't need to add water, instead we use a small tupperware 2 oz cup and fill that half way, it allows us to have the perfect amount of rh during incubation. We use the auto turner, and that works well too. During the lockdown, I put in cotton coffee filters, and that seem to work well for each egg to sit on and then when they hatch, it tends to dry out some of the excessive humidity. We have done 6 hatches with them so far.
Pros - Simple to use, decent temperature regulation, reliable, good for beginners and experts
Cons - I agree with a previous review that it would be nice if their was an easier way to clean around the electronic parts
I love this incubator so much I bought a second one. I have the original version when they first came out around 2002. My second one is the "new old version" that I purchased around 2007. Both incubators are still working great! I am thinking of buying a third because I hatch a lot of eggs in a short amount of time, and I want one dedicated for hatching.
