    has anyone ever heard of or used a "miller mfg. 9200 " incubator? local feed store has one for 60$ and was going to try to hatch some eggs for the first time.

    I think Miller is just a different name for a Little Giant incubator.

    [​IMG] Here is a good thread on LG (Little Giant) incubators, with a lot of good information and tips for LG owners. They are manufactured by Miller. I have an LG. I have had many successful hatches in it. I have a cabinet incubator now I incubate in but I still use my LG as a hatcher.

    IF U ARE A FIRST TIME HATCHER DO NOT GET THE LITTLE GIANT!!
    i had a horrible time with it. failed hatches all the time!
    *it dont keep a steady temp.
    *really hard to adjust
    *hard to adjust humidity
    *takes along time to get to the right temp

    IF U DO GET IT
    i recommend buying
    *a humidity reader
    *another themometer
    *or a digital themomerter with a humidity reader in it.

    after i bought the themometer/humidity reader i never had a problem with it.

    but lots of people dont have problems with them. i just know there difficult bators.
    i use a differnt bator and use the LG as a hatcher.

    THIS IS JUST MY OPINION
    others think differntly im sure

    i only spent $45 on mine at Tractor Supply
