    Hi Everyone,
    Thanks in advance for your help on this.

    We have about 60 Lyon's TX-6s that we rent out to schools, seniors homes, and families that I'm looking to start replacing as some are nearing 20 years old.

    Does anybody have any suggestions as to what brands/models you think might work best for us. My only qualm with the TX-6s is that they take a long time to clean. I'd like to stick with something that is able to acomodate at least 12 chick eggs and have been thinking about the Octagon 20 Eco with Auto-Turner.

    Thanks again,
    Jon

    Thanks Gabrielle!

    I think the window on the more expensive one in your link is smaller than I would like for an educational unit. The Brinsea is what I'm leaning towards.

    One with a turner is on my wish list. I would also like to get an atoumatic one for loaning to my sons school and things like that , I thought it would be fun to have a libary hatch this year if they would let me set it up . Have to have an advanced for that though as I woudnt make it there three times a day lol
