    HI all...
    .Im interested to find ppl on here who use a Brinsea.Mini I think its called.the small Brinsea

    How happy are you with it?
    Any changes youd like in it if you could change it ?
    What is your hatch count for your hatches versus set. eggs ?

    I understand they hold 6 chicken eggs?
    Any cons to this incubator ?
    I have 2 Genesis but am seriously thinking of going to the Brinsea for another.Seem I read most ppl don't ever have a hatch problem with them. and get 4-5 of 6 eggs hatch.
    .Do they hold the water well for humidity? Is there an auto feature with the water ?
    What is the procedure to adding water to them.How often?.
    I ask b/c my Gens hold temp but the humdity is still regulated by you adding the right amount of water at the right time.

    Any problems at hatch with the chicks causing problems with the unhatched eggs due to the small size of the Mini Brinsea?
    Anything else I should know?.
    Thanks ahead
