    hello there,
    im having a go for the first time at hatching some hen eggs i have just got a R-com mini digital incubator (the one that holds three eggs)
    ive got three eggs in at the moment and after five days ive just candled them and all seems ok at the moment,
    has any one got any experience and advice on this incubator that could be of use to me?
    thanks for any help

    Hi! I've got the R-com incubator. This past spring we hatched two out of three eggs. I third one died. We've got three more in there and one is due to start hatching tomorrow. We've got the scope that goes with it so it's easy to check on the eggs. Just make sure you keep the water in in and don't keep the lid off too long when your checking on them. Good Luck!
