    I hatched with one of those about 20 years ago. got 1/3. The thing was about as good as it looks. I think it was 15.95 which included shipping. 8 years old, with penny rolls. It did get me started raising chickens at a young age though.

    If you want to spend less than $20 on an incubator, have a stable ambient room temp. for the incubation period, and like to add/remove foal, tweak light bulbs, etc...then you can hatch eggs in that thing.

    I ordered that thing from gqf back in 1972 along with 6 bob eggs. I got a 0% hatch rate because of many different factors. After that screw up, I secured 6 more bob eggs from a local source, and got a 90% hatch rate.
    It can work with various tweaks, but I don't recommend it!

    Save your grass cutting money, and drop around $100 on a serious incubator. Just MHO [​IMG]

    Even an LG is better than that thing. Read some of the reviews on gqf. They said it broke more kid's hearts than santa not coming down the chimney and some other eh choice words...[​IMG]

    Whoever makes and sells this junk shold be incarcerated.

    Small cardboard box with 25W lightbulb stuck in it will get better results if you pay attention.

    And it is almost FREE.
