    Hi,
    Has n e one used this type of incubator?
    Have one here, plugged in and its heated up well and I finally got conversion info and printed out to set it by it.
    How do you get humidity down in those?
    I turned bottle down so less water gets in and soaked up some with a rag.
    I think its running about 55% maybe a little higher.
    Will that be ok?

    Thanks a million!!!!!!!!!!!!1

    Which model do you have? Jimnjay (Jaynie) has one and she loves it. Tuffoldhen has an older model from the 60's (The transparent hen) and has great hatch rates. I just ordered the TX7, but it won't be here until tomorrow.

    Hi,
    We have the TX6 with a turner (where you turn the top and it moves the bars under the eggs to roll them), has air too.
    That's good Jaynie has one because we are getting some eggs from her and hopefully she might be able to advise me a little on it.
    The 1588's are super easy.
    Now I just got to figure this out and figure hatches etc.

    Let me know how your goes and any info you find out about it, sure would help,
    Thanks a mill,
    Angela
