    Hi out there i have been a lurker for a while and due to posts here took the plunge and bought a brinsea eco 20...well loaded it up with some buff silkie eggs and a few nankin eggs...put a humidity/thermometer thing in it at egg level and it reads a little off compared to the brinsea thermometer...patience certainly is a virtue for this incubating stuff...hope I got it right oh well the birds are laying consistently so I guess if they dont candle well by day 14 i will put in another batch....good luck to my fellow incubatorors out there and thanks for all the great info...[​IMG]

    Good luck with your hatching! I've got two Brinsea Mini Advance incubators full of eggs right now. (All of 14 eggs... 7 in each.)
