    "Can be useful with careful attention and some..."
    Pros - Digital display, holds a good number of eggs, Easy to clean and disinfect, comes with fan. lots of water troughs to help with humidity
    Cons - Horrible temperature spikes, cannot rely on built in thermometer/hygrometer at all,
    So, my sweet husband got this for me for Valentine's Day knowing that I wanted an actual incubator(typically use home made). I was so absolutely thrilled I instantly plugged it in and got it ready for eggs. Already know how to incubate eggs, already have experience and done tons of research. I started with using a secondary thermometer/hygrometer to verify my digital readings I was getting up top on the incubator display. They were so off that I actually returned my Acurite thermometer/hygrometer, thinking I must have gotten a dud. Nope. Turns out even when this says it's at a good solid 99.5 or 100.0 it can actually be up anywhere between 104-116. Yes, I actually got a solid spike of 116. Fried all of my babies. I've been through well over 80 poor eggs, chicken, duck, and quail before being able to figure this thing out and make any use out of it. I was getting very close to smashing it with something, but it was a thoughtful gift, so I wanted to make it work somehow. I have, and can't actually use the digital display up top at all, nor can I actually set my incubator at 99.5 to actually get 99.5, but I have figured it out for the most part and keep a very close eye on it to watch for spikes. It's not reliable, and isn't even able to hatch anything unless you go through the work of making adjustments that should be unnecessary. Also the fan doesn't seem to be strong enough as my temperature is not consistent throughout the bator. am still using this, but making a new better home made incubator this week, as I need more space and want something I can count on. Overall, I would not recommend, or purchase again. There is a thread in the forum on this particular incubator and I couldn't find anyone that said anything good about it. I added it to the review section thinking that other people would like info before deciding to try it or not. Hopefully others have had better experiences than I have, or heard of others having. Happy Incubating![​IMG]
