    He he he, you can't incubate green olives. I've never seen an egg that small and that color.

    You definitely need another incubator. Is this a Little Giant?

    I'm sure I'll forget something but heres what I can think of off the top of my head. Welsummer, marans, silkies, sebrights, call ducks, americauna/EE, speckled sussex, the very small eggs bottom right are button quail. I have a small que forming to the side there. Will have to build or buy another bator soon. I'm pretty sure its a little giant it does the job fairly well. This is my first hatch hand turning so we'll see how it goes. I've hatched in it before with an egg turner with ~80% hatch rate.

    Does it use a wafer thermostat, or an electric thermostat that has a little red light that comes on and off

    I guess am electric thermostat as it has the red light that goes on and off.

    Yes, more than likely a Little Giant. I wouldn't say that it is, as I have seen a lot of different foreign incubators that look a lot like this.
