    I'm stoked! After searching on ebay and finding a nice looking LG with all the bells and whistles, I decided to do a search in here and make sure I was getting the best one.

    Glad I did that!! No LG for me! Haha!

    I got the Brinsea Mini Advance. It's my Christmas present from my ever patient hubby. <3

    Who would have thought that chickens are EXTREMELY contagious! Haha!

    I'm very excited! My friends have some laying hens that are in with a mutt roo and they are going to give me some eggs to hatch. They have RIR, EE, and standard Cochins. The roo is a cochin/ee cross looks like. He's VERY handsome. By the time I get the unit, get a couple eggs, and get them hatched, my current babies should be out of the brooder. Chicken math attacks! Hahaha!

    hey, i have read alot about those incubators, they sound like they are really good, i have a rcom mini incubator, does any one have any experience with those, i also got the E-z scope with it, im asking how it is, because i have no eggs to put in it at the moment, but i would really like to see some pics of their rcom if any one has any experience with one

    I can't believe you didn't buy an LG, I would have thought that after your BYC search, you would have figured that jesus used one the way everybody think's their so good. Anyway good for you............ you made a good choice. I would hatch egg's in my Britches before I bought an LG. Happy for you. I love it when folks come on and say >>>>>>>>>>>> hey my egg's won't hatch in my LG what happened Boo Hoo.
