    I was looking at G.Q.F and I like the idea of just using one of those little guys just because I don't want to get in over my head. I just don't see a way to adjust the humidity. Has anyone used one of these successfully? Does anyone have one that they aren't going to use?[​IMG]

    Someone on here did hatch 1 egg out of three in one of those things. In general the results are very disappointing. If you did manage to hatch 1 that would be one lonely little chick. They are flock animals and need companionship. Get the bigger bator and try to hatch several at a time. I think you'll be more satisfied with it.

    I didn't even think what would happen if only one hatched. That would be sad. I think I may build my own, even though DH says no more! Thanks Miss Prissy.
