    after dealing with an early 90's little giant for 2 weeks, my genesis 1588 came in the mail. this thing is awesome! the window is so large and clear and the auto-temp is right on. my first thermometer/hydrometer kept reading at 101 so i put 2 more electronic thermometers in there and they put it right at 100 with 45% of humidity. no more adjusting the heat dial 1/99999999 of a turn to adjust for me bumping into it. just thought id brag about my new toy. it was your guys' fault though - too much positive feedback on the 1588.

    already got some! it really is incredible watching a the fetus of a chicken moving around inside an egg... even the heartbeat on a shortly incubated egg... pretty amazing.

    They are nice. Miss Prissy turned me on to it... so that's why I have so many chickens.
    But here in AZ you really have to watch the humidity.
    So I got a Brinsea. Debiraymond turned me on to that so I have two to blame for all the wonderful chickens in my backyard.

    I don't ever set one incubator with out the other, they like company.

    Each hatch I have over 40 chicks and then of course I end up culling or rehoming 20 + roos, but I've got some real beauties out there.
