    Brinsea mini advance is great!! ! Set it and forget it!
    Auto everything. No need for the mini advance11. Just look on eBay for the original mini advance. I had 2 of them for years.

    Not sure on budget but I've had good luck with a 1588 genesis. 200 dollars.

    Since eggs are getting to lockdown and not hatching sounds like a possible humidity issue. To high during incubation and chicks possibly drowning.

    Edit: or possible air exchange issues

    Are they pretty accurate? Good hatches?

    My club uses these with pretty good results, I got 70% hatching last year.
