    After a lot reading here i decided to go with the mini brinsea advance incubator.
    After much more reading i decided to try few different eggs.
    4 was fresh warm eggs, 1 day old sat overnight in 38 degree nesting box and 2 from refrigerator so i marked them to see which ones do anything.

    Good luck with your eggs :fl

    Great choice of incubator :thumbsup
    I have the Brinsea octagon and absolutely love it, very reliable and I have had some fab results with it.

    What day are you in with them? Hope you will be able to keep us updated with how you get on with them.

    Sounds like things are going good :thumbsup

    Have you left your questionable one in just incase? They can trick you into thinking nothing is happening in there, but there can be!

    Congratulations :celebrate

    They sure do like to play with the other eggs once they have hatched. It's good encouragement for the other eggs to get a wriggle on!
