    There are all kinds of threads where this incubator is hailed as the best... many hear have it including me. I've hatched tons of quail in mine. It will be fine.

    Just do a search on Genesis Hovabator and see how many threads come up...

    Just got done hatching 41 chicks from one [​IMG] they are super easy to use.Agreed it's one of the most liked small bators out there.
    Now I have only 60 eggs left to hatch-my Genesis is my hatching bator although I have used it from day 1-21 before.
    Got to get more eggs..no I don't Got to get more eggs...NO I DON'T
    Oh by the way you will find out it's too small real quick so then you will buy another and you still won't have enough room.
    You are about to be sucked into the Chick addiction [​IMG] WELCOME

    I meant to use the search function here in this forum to see how many use it. [​IMG] But I'm sure google came up with a lot too..

    I actually have two also ,mainly so I use one as a hatcher and the other for incubating... that way you can do staggered hatches or immediately start another batch incubating when you put the others in the hatcher.. but start out with one [​IMG]
