    Well my parents are the best parents ever and said i could get any incubator i wanted!! So i looked up a bunch and asked around, and i decided to get the R-com King Suro 20 incubator. Well this morning i was soo happy when i was opening gifts!! I opened it and i got this one http://www.jmtdistributors.com/lyonmarsh-tx6-classroom-ki.html ......the one i wanted was on sale, and i no my parents dident mess the order up because me and my mother ordered it. DO you think i should keep it? and has anyone had expierence with this incubator??

    Just my opinion... But I wouldn't keep it, if it was not what I ordered. I have no experience with either incubator.. I have a Hovabator, but I am sure this one is fine. But the one you wanted holds a few more eggs.

    I would tell them they shipped the wrong one and get your R-com King Suro 20 incubator
    The R-com looks to be bigger and more digitally controlled but I don't know either incubator so that's just my opinion

    You probably don't need the whole kit, but I've heard both bators work pretty well. Lyons are what we had back in the research lab that I was in that used chicks for research.

    Personally, from a window shopping view, the R-com things are more gimicky, like dysons of vacuum cleaners.

    My friend has a bunch of those ones and I think she has really good hatches, she isn't on here today or I'd ask her to come comment, all I know is she likes them and they work well for her. [​IMG] Hope this helps!

    I love my Turn X once you get use to it I find I set, candle and add water to the bottle have to remember to turn the turner off and take the chicks out...very durable parts are easy to get and you can fix it yourself I wish I had the money to get the big one

    The Turn-Xs have amazing reputations and they last FOREVER. They're made like scientific equipment. You basically got a classic Volvo instead of a new Infiniti - it's not as glamorous but you're likely to get even better results with it.

    Everyone has their own opinion...Having said that I have the RX2. We hatch thousands of eggs. I have other brands Sportsman ex...

    I prefer Lyon/Marsh. We have 5 .
    Once you use these it is hard to go to other brands.
    Accurate,simple ,reliable.

    These don't last long on auction sites...theres a reason.



    Just my.02

    Good Luck
