    Has anyone used a Brower Incubator? They have been in business since 1924 so I expect they are good but have never incubated eggs before so I do not really know. I looked at all the common brands but this appealed to me the most. I did purchase one and will be trying it out but wondered if anyone has used one and if there is anything I should be aware of with this unit. Thanks for any input you can give me.

    well considering you bought this unit new???? and just recently bought it,,, i would think it is a Brower Top hatch incubator,,, i have an older model Top hatch,,, and i have nothing good to say about this incubator,,, except it turns the eggs lol,,, but i have heard that the newer models are great incubators,,,, i hope you have lots of luck with your new incubator!!!!

    Thank you very much for the response. It is a new top hatch model and the only problem I see is that I will not be hatching many eggs at one time and I think I have to add fake eggs or golf balls to balance the weight. I was wondering about sending it back and getting a smaller unit that does the humidity, turning and auto temp adjustment but I don't know what brand is the best even after looking at them all on the internet. Any suggestions or are they all somewhat of a problem? I know MaMa does the best job but I wanted this as a back-up in case mom changes her mind mid stream.

    Quote:I sure for what you are looking for the best incubator will be the Brinsea. They have a system that regulates humidity it goes around the $400 for the whole set up, if you go to facebook find them sometines they give 10% discounts

    there are other option
    like the Brinsea eco aroun $99

    ask around here and you gill get lots of feedback from this incubators

    Thank you.....I'll check them out. Four hundred is a little pricey for me for a back-up but maybe in the long run it would be the best investment.

    your tophatch should treat you well, but if i may be wrong, then just getting a brinsea incubator for 2oo dollars would be really good as well
