    Was thinking of asking for one for an R-Com mini with Ez scope for Christmas, but was wondering how well they worked ? and if anyone had experience using them or had any helpful hints... [​IMG] also it says it holds three large chicken eggs ? how many bantam does it hold ? how much do you think the smaller egg tray would be for bantam ?

    Thanks

    I have the R-Com mini, but no Ez-Scope. The R-Com works great! I love it!! [​IMG] The smaller egg tray is for quail size eggs- so unfortunately it will only take 3 eggs, unless your hens lay TINY TINY eggs! That is one disadvantage of it. It controls everything but holds very little.

    Hopes this help [​IMG]

    I plan on saving for a R-comb mini they look great. The smaller tray is for quail eggs you will be able to Maybe only fit 3 chicken eggs in it.

    I
    have a still air hova bator that works great but with it I put in a dozen or so and end up with loads of chicks that we can't keep.
    and since my parents do not like me hatching a lot [​IMG] what I probably would do is get 6 or so eggs put three in the R-com and the extras in the hova in case some in the the R-com are duds or die. plus the scope looks like it would be cool. and I would not have to monitor temp or humidly as much a plus since I am in school most of the day.

    I have hatched in the Rcom mini, but haven't tried the scope. It worked great. Very, very easy to use. I've heard from other people on here putting up to 6 chicken eggs in it, but then you would have to turn them yourself. I would look into whether the scope works on eggs with colored shells. For some reason, I am thinking that I've heard that it didn't work well on anything but white eggs.

    Keep an eye on the Brinsea website. I've seen them sell 'over stocks' and 'scratch and dent' Rcom mini's for $80-90.

    Happy Hatching!
