    Hi all, I bought one of these to use in the spring and wondered what has been other peoples experience with them? They have a preset temp/humidity, a place to put water in without opening the incubator and a turner, plus a big window at the top to watch the hatch. The only thing I saw that I think could be improved would be to put some towels around the outside bottom to keep it more insulated. I am excited to try it out!
    I have used many types of incubators, the styrofoam ones, the old round metal ones and the best one was a a Lyons (?) TX6.
    So any input here would be most welcomed. :)

    I still would like to know if anyone has had experience with this particular type of incubator.

    It ended up that I will be starting the incubation process this evening after setting up the Incuview and making sure temps were holding steady. :)

    Please do!! Since yesterday this incubator has been really good on temps. I did get a little thermometer/hygrometer to put in because they say the hygrometer that comes with this isn't very reliable.
    Next month I am getting some Swedish Flower Hen eggs so I wanted to do this as a test run. I might get some other type of Scandinavian breed too.

    So far so good and if everything has gone like I hope, chicks from this test hatch will be arriving this weekend! :)
