I have no problem with LG or Hova's.. I have developed a set up procedure that really works. I send it only to people who request it off group to avoid having to argue about it.. there are many people from this group as well as other groups who have tried it and it worked for them also..
Anyone else? Thanks for the PM, jvls1942.
My 1588's hold the temp and humidity very nicely. The 1602n really sucks at holding the temp so I only use it to hatch in. It only gets up to 98-99.
My hovabator 160N, (with fan) holds temp good. ranged 99.3-100.2 (no spikes)
Humidity, (I made a water tray for the bottom) It holds temp where I want it. Around 29-40 , somewhere in there. I fill it once every 1-2 days.
LOL! I was going to refer you to Jim's Rules...I see he chimed in on here already! When this hatch is done for me I am so following his system! Terri O
I own a Genesis Hova bator and it's done very well for the past 4 years. Just this past year I notice the lower left hand corner doesn't heat up to the 99.5 anymore. Usually it's a full degree off. So I use my Genesis only for hatching now and use my new Brinsea from day 1-18. The Genesis has hatched at least 4 batches of chicks each year.
My 1588 does a great job. I do have to refill the humidity trays, but I attribute that more to the dry air where I live than the incubator.
I made a homemade incubator. I order a thermostat off ebay $16.00. Since then no probs with temp. Humidity is controlled but size of water pan...more surface area the higher the humidity - the small the surface area the lower the humidity.
