    This is my first time hatching eggs EVER. I've done a lot of reading on this forum and I think I have a lot of usefull info already but I want to be prepared when I get my eggs next week!! I'm soooo excited [​IMG]

    I have a 2362R Hovabator and will be reading the manual tonight. Does anyone have this same incubator and have any problems/sucess stories to share??

    I think I have the 2362 N. Is that the same thing?

    I am only on day 2 of my first batch of eggs in the bator, so I can't offer much advice. I did set it up a week before I got my first set of eggs and worked with it to get the temp where I wanted it. I even bought 2 dozen grocery store eggs and put in it to simulate my hatch. So far, all is going well.

    I have no idea if that's the same. It may be slightly different.

    Let me know how your hatch goes! I'm interested in seeing results!

    At least you have a good "bator", so you should have great success [​IMG]

    I'm not sure but I think the 2362R Hovabator had the picture window and was replaced by the 2362N Hovabator which has the two smaller windows. Not sure about that.
