    Hello, I was wondering if any of y'all that have tried to hatch eggs, got a good result with an incubator. I have looked at reviews for small incubators and of course, it will have bad reviews but sometimes I'm just not sure about it. I decided to ask some of you to tell me if you recommend a small-sized incubator, most likely for duck eggs but please tell me other experiences as well. Thank You, have a good day. :)

    I'd recommend the MagicFly. You can purchase it on Amazon

    The Rcom Pro 10 is a small yet super amazing incubator.

    People seem to like the Magic Fly one. Keep in mind any incubator is subject to user error. The more plug and play they are the higher the price.

    How small?

    Brinsea makes both a Mini (7 eggs) and a Maxi (14 egg) not cheap ...

    Brinsea is the best ive ever used. Set it and forget it. It does it all for you...except adding water

    @Punkybrewster How often do you have to add water? I am having major issues keeping humidity up in mine. As in, I have to add water every couple hours to keep it in range!! And I know my hydrometer is correct....
    So for that reason, and the price point, I would avoid the Brinsea Mini Advance.

    I just keep the water level at the line it should be at in that little outside cup.
    I was adding a little water about every other day when it showed the water level down.
