    Hi all,
    Was just wondering what make of incubators different people use and their success rates with hatching. I bought a cheap automatic German incubator and so far using my own eggs have had a 100% success rate. I use a titan brooder and have not had any chicks die. I was told a 100% success rate is highly unusual and was wondering what kind of success rate people have had with their bators.

    For 2 1/2 years I used an old LG9200. Pain in the butt, but had awesome hatches with it. Had one 100% hatch with 20 eggs from my pullets but on the average 85-100%. The heating element started going last year so I retired it and bought a Hovabator 1583 and am on my first incubation with it.
