    My birthday present to myself, the Brinsea Octagon 20 Eco!
    Only $99 plus $24 shipping! [​IMG]

    I have 4 ducks eggs waiting, hopefully will have a dozen by the time it arrives. I have never hatched anything since I was in 4-H long ago, so I may be getting over my head, but I want more ducks!

    I will go pick out a hygrometer tomorrow. I did not get the turner, it sounds pretty easy to do it by hand.

    I will let you all know how this new incubator does.

    I have a regular oct. 20 and have been very happy with it. My only complaint is that it doesn't hold enough![​IMG]

    Does this thing need an egg-turner?

    The limitation of eggs to some is a negative, perhaps brinsea is doing us a favor with this model.... Incubating a few and learning from the experience. Bedsides I find that I being a consumer seem to over buy and over build....no 6 cylinder truck for me, I need a V-8.
