    I'm just wondering because I just want 2 or 3 White Crested Black Polish to add to my Barred Rock flock (currently 3 weeks old)...I cannot invest several hundred dollars into something I won't use often. Please share your experience -

    Thanks!!!

    I've heard very bad things about those bators. They have a hard time holding the temperature.

    I've never used one, but I've never heard anything good about them.

    Rarely are those little domes successful. I have known of very few good hatches from them.

    That was the first bator i ever got and it was a waste of money the temps kept going up and down i was always trying to fix the foil and that bator just kept me a nervous reck i wouldn't tell anyone to buy it....

    i have seen some people have hatches from it but i know i would never use it again
