I was going to get this, but for the same price you can get the Hovabator 1588, which does way more eggs, has a pre set temp for chickens. I'm so glad I bought the Hovabator instead, it's so addictive, there is no way I would have been happy with 3 eggs. I started out buying 1 dozen, then I added 17 more, and now I just added 11 more silkie eggs. But I was thinking of buying the R-com 3 for my niece and nephew, we'll see.
Well, I know the price is high but for me, someone who won't be hatching many eggs (maybe 10 a year) would this suite me?
I don't want a huge incubator in my living room or in the garage and have to set it up every time I want to use it, then take it down.
What I'm really curious about is if there are any other alternatives. Maybe something like a 5-egg incubator or less for a lot less money.
I have one for my button quail eggs....they are due to hatch in 8 days....i can tell you then how it worked, haha. So far it is pretty cool. It turns the eggs...tells you if you need to add water and controls everything itsself. I also have larger styrofoam ones, i basically just got this to try it w/ the buttons when i'm not hatching anything else.
they are nice little things I have heard alot of good stuff about them and how easy they are as long as you dont mind them being small.
There is a <i think its called> brinsea br 10
it holds 10 eggs thats if you dont want a bigger one
