    Well I am new to this forum but it has been great resource and thanks to everyone for all the insight! Like every hobby the more I learn the more it costs me. [​IMG]

    Today I received my R-Com King Suro 20 from Kemp's Koops and set it up and tested it. Within a couple of hours the temp stayed within .2 degrees and humidity within 2%. I have heard such horror stories that I decided to invest in a good one. I wanted one that would hold temp, hold humidity, and include a turner. It holds 24 eggs which is way more space than I will ever need. I figure my first hatch will cost me about $50 per chick and my eggs will cost me about $10 a dozen if I ever get there. What a bargain!

    I have to travel for a week and when I get back I will order some eggs and put it to the real test.
