Does anyone have either Brinsea HatchMAKER or PolyHATCHER?

    What is your experience? I see that they are both still air. Is that okay? Does the Hatchmaker need a humidity pump? The Polyhatcher says it has external access to water reservoirs so I am guessing a humidity pump is not needed. I am hoping for some response before the sale ends.

    Thanks,

    I do not have them - give you a bump in hopes someone who does sees this.

    I've got one, and always had good results. unless incubating shipped eggs...

    i never monitor humidity, just keep an eye on my water rings.

    I also do not run it at 102.5 just above egg, but at 101.5 - 102.0

    this allows for slight temp variations throughout day and night. otherwise a very good little box... just shame there is not turner available to fit inside...
