    Quote:Smart move! [​IMG] Now I wish I had talked hubby into a higher end bator. At least one with some accurate digital read outs! I have just the standard LG without the fan kit, but I did splurge on the auto. turner tray....thank goodness!

    My small incubators have been hatching 1 out of 3 eggs lately, and found they had temps of 104 and 105! I think some chicks may be a little more hardy then we thought. Still, dismal hatching rate, so I bought the Octogon 20 eco today!
     
  8. What brand are your "smaller" incubators ?
