    I just hatched 2 out of 4 quail eggs in a chick-bator and waiting to see what the other two do. I consider this pretty good considering everything I have seen on these things is negative. Has anyone else had any luck with these? Yes they are more like a toy than a serious bator but I think for children or classrooms i would recommend these things for their ease and they are so much cheaper.

    I just ordered one for my son. I thought it would be fun for him. Thanks for sharing your experience with it. Like you I haven't heard much about them.

    It was fun and they are simple. I would suggest getting a second thermometer. Have tin foil available, it is what you use to raise the temperature. PM if you have any questions maybe I have experienced your problem.
