    I have seen that they are very EXPENSIVE, but I am sure that the LYON brand incubator is very good. I have seen the Dome Lyon incubators in action, and they are awesome, but the big incubators I wouldn't know about. I am sure you got an Awesome incubator. I would love to see some pictures of it when you get it. How much did it cost?

    I had one a few years ago. It held too many eggs and hatched most of them. Just too many for me at once. I sold it on Ebay for way more then I paid for it.

    On the down side I only had the standard size egg rack. I have lots of bantams and couldn't put those eggs in. Also the humidity bottle was hard to get used too using.

    I'm using one right now. But I only paid 200 on Craigslist.
