    I hope so, I just ordered it. It's the one with the external humidity pump. I have too many distractions and can't handle great show potential birds not hatching out because of temperature and humidity fluctuations.

    I ordered it from Brinsea for 449. Did I just get duped for extras I don't need? (The ECO is only 99)

    No. The realy accurate incubators cost, but at the price you have to pay to get eggs from good stock ( since including the shipping it can easily run to 75 or 100 dollars or more for a dozen eggs), I think that it is worth the price. Fluctuating temperatures also cause a myriad of other problems and deformaties depending on what day the eggs get cold (bent feet, crossed beaks and the like). So for hatching out a few show prospects from shipped eggs I say good for you since you will maximize your chances. It will pay for itself in no time. Not that there aren't people out there that do as much with less, but if you don't have to ... [​IMG]
