    That's a very good starter incubator [​IMG]. I have the same thing but with a turbofan as well as the 1611 Turner. I had a 100% hatch the first time I used it. Well...14/15 were infertile from the start and were removed on day 14...but one hatched! [​IMG]

    I use those. They are great. I have had no problems with mine. I had problems with where it was in my house, and had some bad hatches, but no problems with the bators themselves. You have to be careful with drafts around these. They need a more stable room temp, and draft free to do well. Otherwise, follow the instructions, and it's easy as pie.
