    I'm looking at a Best Choice Products 96 Digital Clear Egg Incubator Hatcher Automatic Egg Turning Temperature Control on Amazon. Has anyone used it or had any information on it? It is listed at $129 dollars. It looks like it might be okay. Just wondering how a double tray work with temperature? I would like to order one as soon as possible

    I thought about that but the design made me nervous - temp differences from top to bottom and the trays being stacking seemed like a pain. I ended up getting the 56 one with a clear top.

    Either way, I would recommend a separate hatcher, unless you plan on setting and hatching that many eggs all at once.

    No not really looking to hatch that many. I have an incubator now and it is okay I just wanted another one. So I could have two hatch going at one time if I wanted to. I was thinking of using the top to incubate and the bottom for hatching. But just kind of looking

    That won't really work because you won't be able to have separate humidities in each half of the incubator. The hatcher needs higher humidity than the incubator.
