    I'm still deciding what to get.. the R-com KIng Suro, the R-com digital 20, a Brinsea, and now this ReptiPro 5000 pops up on search.
    It has a nice window, but nothing comes up in BYC search. That alone makes me suspicious.[​IMG]
    Stable temp & humidity are #1 for me, closely followed by cost & counter space.
    Thanks in advance for any input! [​IMG]

    Looks nice, if it had a turner it might make a good one but I dont think its big enough to fit an off the shelf turner in it.

    Reptile eggs are not turned. Hence the whole no turner, no room for one thing. It should hold very very good temp and humidity because herps are even more sensitive. But it's not designed for easy chickening. Could it be fiddled, absolutely but at that price new... buy a poultry incubator already set up.
