    Can I even express my joy? I've been hijacking space in RevolutionMama's occasionally (she has 3!) and needed my own.

    I can't tell you how reliable hers have always been, and I'm just tickled to have gotten a steal on this one on ebay.

    You will NOT be disappointed! After years of using a still air LG with no turner, my R-Com 20 made incubating eggs so easy that my neighbor had no qualms checking on the eggs when I was out-of-town for a weekend.

    Quote:It's a 20, though isn't the 50 amazing!?!?

    I have 6 of the LG/Hovabator still-air, and feel like I have that down as well as anyone can, but this is going to be glorious!!

    Well. Now I'm just mad.

    The unit needed to be calibrated. Fine. Did it.

    Then it starts telling me I'm out of water- ummmm, no, it's got a full 12 oz. in there!

    It smells like smoke. Like the last batch of eggs were in there with a pack-a-day habit.

    Its lid is a 2 part unit that is supposed to insulate...but this one's coming apart. It said LIKE NEW and USED TWICE!

    I'm bummed. Now I'll have to go through negotiations and try to get through the ebay buyer protection system. I just wanted it to work as stated! I'm glad I had my other hatcher up and running. It's lockdown day.

    Of course. I bet you'll be able to negotiate... they are REALLY leaning towards the buyers now! [​IMG]

    Good luck!
