    I am wondering if anyone has this incubator. I am thinking of getting it because the two expensive ones I bought broke the heating elements. If you do have one I would like to know how your hatches did. I assume I will have to turn the eggs a couple times a day. It does not say it does it automatically. Thanks in advance.

    I don't have the one in your photo but I have one similar in size. The Brinsea Mini Advance is a great incubator. It has an automatic turner and a reservoir for water to maintain humidity levels. I highly recommend it. As long as your eggs are fertile you will have a great hatching rate.

    That is a very nice incubator. Maybe I will try one. Thanks for the post.

    I have a "chinese cheapie". Our controls look similar, but mine is a 48 egg turner. I'm looking it so far (it's spot on with temp and humidity - I have an extra thermometer and hygronometer inside just in case. I would recommend! When I first got mine, the alarm wouldn't go off (I really didn't know what I was doing) called the distributor, and they were great! They offered a refund or replacement regardless that I have a working bator.
