    Hello all, I just order the IncuView All-In-One Automatic Egg Incubator from incubator warehouse.com. Was wondering if anyone in the BYC community has used one of these before or knows someone who has. I know it is a fairly new incubator to the market but it looks like it offers a little bit for than the Styrofoam incubators but at a reasonable price. [​IMG] [​IMG][​IMG]
    It uses a universal egg tray that rolls/turns the egg instead of tilting them. Any input or opinions would help. Thanks again guys & gals

    My search also revealed very little in the way of reviews. Was hoping someone may have used one or know someone has. I guess i will have to wait until mine gets here. Fire it up and do my own review.

    Well mine arrived last week and i just put in a small test batch of 15 eggs last night. So far it holds the temp great. Filling up the outside water channel (there are thee in all) keeps the humidity at at 40-45%. It is way quieter than my old styrofoam model. Although the temp fluctuates of the digital readout I have and egg-ometer that I ordered with the incubator (gives internal temp of the egg) that is holding rock solid at 99.5 degrees. Will update everyone that may be interested or that is thinking of ordering one as i go along.

    Following x2...although I have been told I am not allowed [​IMG] to buy a second incubator I love the look of this one and the open top so you can see everything...would be the perfect hatching bator!!!

    Day 14 will be tomorrow and I will re candle the eggs but so far everything is great. Put 13 in and so far have only had to cull 2 eggs.(both proved to be infertile). Original post was a typo with "15" eggs started with 13. I have 11 that are growing and veining out beautifully. so far the incubator holds the temp rock solid. Filling the outside water trough gives you constant 40-50% humidity for about three days before refilling. Will update after candling tomorrow.

    I was wondering about the steady temperature. That's a lot of window. It's great if it's steady.
