    First year hatching chicks. Last night I just bought both of these inubators off craigslist.The Brinsea 20 octagon and the mini incubator. were both used for only one season and in very nice condition. I relized I didn't need both but the price wast way to good. We have the ecoglow20 and absolutely love it. I was reading the reviews and theses incubators seem like the best of the best. I was just wondering if anyone can give me some tricks and tips for the first time using them. Also I planned on hatching serama eggs intsted of buying the small tray for the mini would i be able to hatch them useing the 20 octagon.. also what the best way to manually turn the eggs

    Thank's chicken friends!!!

    Do a site search for your models. You will find lots of information. Good luck!

    Eco 20 is designed to have the entire incubator turned. Very easy. An auto turned can be purchased as well. We have the auturner so pretty easy. We love ours Eco 20. Hatched 6/7 our first one and 22/23 in our second. Have fun
