I have 4 precious eggs in LG-should I get a Brinsea Advance Mini ?

    I have 4 very precious eggs in my current LG still air incubator. I was caught unprepared when my hens decided to lay eggs again, and I quickly set up my incubator and placed 4 eggs inside. Today is day 4 and at least 2 are fertile, yippee !! I want to give these eggs the best chance possible for a successful hatch. Should I order a Brinsea Advance Mini and switch the eggs to that when I get it, or do I get a super great thermometer and hydrometer and PRAY PRAY PRAY and stay with the LG ?

    Many thanks,

    Michelle

    That would be an excellent idea, in my not-so-humble opinion.

    YES! [​IMG] I have LG's and I have Brinsea's. The LG needs more babying and doesn't hold temps as well. Plus the Brinsea will have a fan.

    I have the mini advance. I hatched 6 out of 7 eggs on my first try. I would recommend it.

    The Brinsea is one of the best little bators you could get ahold of No trouble to operate at all
