    Just thought I would share this with everyone. We just started the chicken thing last spring. I had never used an incubater.....ever. This thing worked great, way easy to use (had a turner as well). It came in the mail 23 days ago, put it together, plugged it in, added water, went out to the coop and got 4 eggs just to try it out. 100% hatch rate yesterday,4 fuzzballs in there now. Only way it could be any more easy is if on went broody and did it themself.

    How great for your first try. Not many can say they get 100% at ALL, much less their first try at incubating!![​IMG]
