    I need a little advice, I started my farm only two months ago when I got the birds home I got an egg...great so in the hovabator it went next week two more OK awesome but a little late. Anyway day 28 for the first one and nothing so after 2 more days I did an eggtopsy bird under developed inside maybe only ten or eleven days developed, no worries right I got 2 more well one started smelling so I removed it and now the other one never even developed probably not fertile I guess all that to ask what's the best incubators for a small farm thanks for listening to my problem

    I am using a brinsea octagon 20 advance. It works really well.

    Eta. I have hatched 3 royal palms out of 6 shipped eggs in it. It will hold 24 chick3n eggs.

    Nice pics. Ralphie and feisty chick.

    Like the name you settled on "turkules"

    Was in the pen this morning and one of the poults I hatched this spring is a tom. There was 4 qt icecream pail in the pen and decided to sow his wild oats with it.

    A couple of the older toms were looking at him like boy you've got a lot to learn

    I hatch in 3 different incubator. *1588 genesis. Brinsea 20 adv. And reptipro 6000.

    I had all 3 give me good and terrible hatches this year. Mostly my fault I think with humidity.

    Best and most consistent results came from the brinsea.

    Brinsea and reptipro hold about 20 eggs each. The 1588 about 40.

    My hopes were to sell enough to get a Dickeys cabinet but gonna have wait on that.

    I use farm innovators and farmking I think it is....

    They both work equally well or poor. depending on what I do right or wrong.

    Oh lord, so that's what I have to look forward to - no old toms to teach him anything here! He had enough trouble learning how to strut and gobble, I think I'll have to ban icecream pails just in case he gets any ideas lol :)
