    DH is ordering mine at the end of this month I can't wait. I have been using the dreaded Little Giant and although I have had no trouble (knock on wood) I can't wait until I can really go to town hatching.

    Congrats! Never heard of them so just checked out the website, which one did you go with? The electronic or wafer thermostat?

    I got the electronic. It has a wafer back-up. I also got the auto-fill humidity control. I'm seriously busy at home and don't want to have to do more than a time or two a day of watching. Otherwise, would have to stop making cheese and soap!! LOL.

    Congrats I know you'll have fun with those babies! My styrofoam bators will have to do me for awhile. Unless I can convince my DH to let me have a big ole hen farm! ha ha

    Thats good to know. I'm gathering eggs for my first go round with incubating. Most coming this week and another dozen next week. Should be interesting in June. I also have 3 does due to kid in June. Will be busy!
