    I
    was looking at this last night and I dreamt I had it [​IMG]

    The hatch was going well until I realised I forgot to turn it on and all my chicks melted into yokey gooey yuckiness...

    Anywho... does it look good?? I honestly dont know what to look for and when I eBay'ed incubators everything that showed up in Australia was roughly the same price (Around $200 Aussie Dollars). I figured if I was going to get one, this looked easy to use, and held up to 40 eggs (I cannot imagine a future where I would EVER hatch anywhere near that many, but it helps to be prepared :p)

    I have never seen that model before. Probably because I am in the U.S.A. I started with an incubator for about 40 eggs. Now I have 5 of them. We are planning to get one that will hold 270 eggs for the spring.

    It seems like an awful lot of money to not have an automatic turner added, but where I am in the US I don't have a clue what incubators go for. As far as the brand goes too, I've never heard of it either. [​IMG]

    Can you get Hova Bators or Brinsea's there in Australia? If so, I would personally look more along those lines.

    Quote:Hovabators are more exspensive here... like $150-345 depending which model you get. http://www.brookfieldpoultryequipment.com/products.php?id=50

    Got it! [​IMG] Like I said, I have no idea what incubators go for there and your $ value compared to ours is different too. This would really be a hard thing to judge for people who aren't in Australia.
