Well, my first incubator ever arrived today. This thread will document my first hatch. I ordered the Brinsea Octagon 20 Eco for $99, no auto-turning cradle. This is the bottom, water goes in the grooves. I filled both up to within 3/4" of the top, per instructions. This is the rack without the dividers. This is the incubator with the lid on. The vent control is the little lever in the middle. I set it half open, also following instructions in manual. I played around with rotating the whole incubator as I will do to turn the eggs, no water spilled anywhere. You can see the glass thermometer on the lower left. I plugged it in and found the temperature control (tiny red dial), but did not touch it. I let it run for about 3 hours. The temperature rose to 99.6ish (it does not have a digital thermometer) within about 45 minutes and did not move. I have no way to measure humidity, but will get something tomorrow. I was too excited to wait. Added 18 of my Dutch Hookbill duck eggs. Quack quack! Here goes nothing!
