    I am hoping to get alot of post in this thread.

    Please review the products you own and list pros and cons. It will be easier on everyone to make there choice.

    I will do a couple


    GQF 1602N incubator: styrofoam incubator with no turner or fan. wafer thermostat. can be used as a hatcher.

    Pros: cheap, lightweight, holds about 50 standard chicken eggs, has 2 viewing windows, has 2 vent holes with plugs.

    cons: no turner or fan, bacteria can get in the crevises of the styrofoam, wafer has to be replaced once a year.



    BROWER top hatch: comes standard with fan and turner, Affordable (around $150 or less) has dishwasher safe. holds up to 50 standard chicken eggs

    Pros: comes with turner and stand, has large viewing window, 4 vent holes with plugs, had a great hatch (95% hatch rate), lights when its heating up, lightweight, made of plastic so its dishwasher safe and you cant get bacteria build up. no wafer thermostat



    cons: motor noise and the light constantly flashes. Thats it


    springfield digital hygrometer. white in color. shows temp and humidity in low or maximum readings.


    pros: pretty cheap and its accurate. comes with 8' probe

    no cons so far




    accurite digital hygrometer: shows temp and humidity at maximum or low readings
