    Does this look like a good incubator? I am really wanting one, but I will wait until I find the right one.... [​IMG]

    I have the same one. it is very simple to use. i wish i had the egg turner. i got mine at farmers co-op. with the egg turner it cost about the same. it generally stays within about three degrees. i don't monitor my humidity and still hatch 'em out. for humidity there is a plastic tray at the bottom with two different slots to put water in. you only fill both a few days before hatch. on top of the plastic trays is a fine wire mesh on which you put the eggs(if you do not have an egg turner) over all pretty good. i really have nothing bad to say about it.

    Seems kind of expensive but for some areas it is in range for what they go for.

    o, and the questionable chick on your page, silver duckwing. it's one of the smallest bantams, which is why its smaller than the rest.

    I don't mean to sound dumb, but what does thermal air flow mean?[​IMG]

    Fancy way of saying it's a still air. Air holes draw air in at the bottom and it goes out air holes at the top. I think that's right. I know for certain there's no fan on it.

    About how much do you think it would cost to add a fan into it? Or should I just look for something else?....
