    After years of fighting with 3 LG incubators we FINALLY bit the bullet and decided on a cabinet incubator. After looking around a lot and reading everything I could on here, I decided on a Dickey and could not be more happy. My first hatch started today, out of 27 eggs I have 16 chicks out and the rest are pipped or zipped. I've dealt with a LOT of leg issues in my past chicks, most likely from temp spikes in the LG's, but every single one of these babies is healthy and looking amazing. I'm on cloud nine on recommend the Dickey Incubators to anyone looking.[​IMG]

    A good incubator can make a HUGE difference in hatches. When you buy one, you are getting what you pay for. Generally the higher the price, the better the incubators ability to hold temperatures & humidity (stability) & that in its elf can make big differences in your hatch success ---- The only thing is, now that you have one that can hatch lots of eggs, if you can't control yourself you'll be overrun with hicks[​IMG]

    I love my redwood Leahy Favorite. The problem is it holds at least 600 eggs. I know because I've had it full!![​IMG]

    If you had it full, why is it a problem, sounds like it's JUST THE RIGHT SIZE
