R-com Rcom Max 50 Mx 50 Fully Automatic Digital Egg Incubator

Discussion in 'Incubating & Hatching Eggs' started by Texas Chickens, Feb 22, 2017.

  1. I raise geese and due to unknown creatures the past few yrs my geese nests were raided good so no gooslings. This yr I have a friend that has a incubator that is hatching my goose eggs for me. However I would like to help hatch them as they are laying eggs like crazy. Anyways trying to find a incubator that will hold goose eggs they are few and far between for the amount of eggs that can be hatched in them. So far I have given friend 30 eggs to hatch as of last night and we are still getting eggs.

    I went looking and it seems that the R-com Max 50 will hold 25 geese eggs.

    Can someone tell me if this is a good incubator or if there is another one that will work for me. Years ago we had a Dickey incubator but when husband died 3 yrs ago I sold it. Bad me

    The Dickey incubator is cheaper than this Rcom but its a cabinet and the Rcom isn't. Mr Dickey show geese eggs can be hatched in his also.

    If anyone has one and can advise me which one to get I would be very happy for any advice given

    R Coms are good incubators. If you have the $ it's a good choice. Hovabators are also good bators at a cheaper price. The 1588 is digital and has a nice picture window.
     
  3. Thank you for your imput re which incubator to get.
    After alot of thinking and relooking I think I am going to go back to a Dickey incubator like we use to have. At least I am going to call Mr Dickey and see what he tells me.
    If its a go then the Dickey will be cheaper that either one of them jncluding shipping.

    We got very good hatches with ours. Its just the geese egg thing as I never did those eggs in the Dickey incubator when we had it.

    Thank you again for replying to my query
