    I love mine... it only takes about an hour to warm up and it keeps a temp so much better than the foam 'bators. Do you use a hatcher?
    I'm putting a couple batches in soon. First one will probably go in tomorrow night.

    No, don't wish you had a hatcher... it'll drive you crazy. As soon as I move one tray out of the incubator to the hatcher, I wanna put more eggs in the empty tray of the 'bator!
    It's a vicious circle!
