    I had lent it to a friend a while back - but don't remember her returning it. But I guess she did! Now I'm on the precipice - do I start down the path of incubating my own eggs...
    Its an older model, I guess. Hovabator 1582. I hatched a few geckos in it, so I know it works. :eek:)
    Oh, the choices. This is worse than picking a flavor at Baskin Robbins!

    Go on, give it a try! You can't do worse than me!! And what a blast if and when they hatch!! But my advice is find some fertile eggs that don't mean a whole lot to you to practice on and figure out all the kinks that tend to come up. I have of course started with a bang, 50 eggs in the bator and it won't heat properly! So do a trial run with some cheap, free fertile eggs first!

    I got my eggs from ebay . Usually the sellers are more than willing to make you a mix of whatever fertile eggs they have.

    Well, I plugged it in. We'll see if it works(don't see why it wouldn't). Then I can always do a test with my eggs. BRxwhite silkie roo. Hmmmm. Maybe I'll order some eggs. [​IMG]
