    What's your secret? I see a temperature probe, and a plain old cheap thermometer on the eggs. You must be doing something very right.

    What other incubators do you have?
    I like hovabators. LGs are the older the better it seems. I've had three different models and they've all let me down time after time. Never again.
    I've notice about everything made by LG are crap anymore. Feeders falling apart. Waterers bases falling off when you turn them upside down.
    IDK if I'm going to be supporting any of their products much longer.

    Do you use water in the wells, or run it dry?
