It has been several years since I hatched any eggs in an incubator. I am looking at some of the newer things available now and am really surprised how things have changed from the VERY basic bator I had previously. Does anyone have the RCOM20? Has it functioned properly for you without any headaches? Is it as simple as adding eggs and water and letting it go? Is the hova-bator with the pre-set thermostat and automatic turner just as good? I am a bit skittish now about hatching my eggs but want to give it a try again. I am forever traumatized by the last batch of eggs I hatched. I went to work one day with eggs in the bator and all quiet and fine. I came home that afternoon to a bator full of half hatched eggs and all dead chicks. I have never touched an incubator since. That was at least 12 years ago. I think it is time to shake off the past and try again. Any suggestions to your preference in a bator would be welcome.
