I just hatched out 35 chicks for a friend this week for a friend and more are still in the incubator. His expensive incubator just quit and he called me to see if I was hatching. I told him no but I could have some incubators ready in less than 2 hrs. I just plugged in my 2 Genesis units and they were ready for eggs before the eggs got here. I also have an expensive Dickey unit that will do literally hundreds of eggs at a time that is a wonderful incubator. But for quick start up with no worry I have nothing but faith in my Genesis. No knock against any other incubator but I know of no other incubator where you can plug it in and not worry about having to adjust it (ever) for under 200 with the egg turner. A great little incubator and PERFECT for a novice or experienced poultry lover.
