    hey everyone! new to the forum world of chickens and incubating so giving this a try. I have incubated chicken eggs in ur small Styrofoam incubators and have had great luck. last year me and brother bought a 6100 series Phoenix incubator and new to all the crazy controls it has and considering it only came with a product description packet and NOT a owners manual im having trouble controlling the temperature in it. the controls are electronic 1600 series Love Controller which seams to have diff menus to control from. I have the manual for the controller but its not very user friendly. curious if anyone has any experience with these or knows of a good youtube video for help? the company no longer exists for phoenix so forums are all I can think of for help. here's a picture to help out.

    thanks and hope the forum helps now and in the future!

    Hi & :welcome

    Great that you could join us here! Sorry but I’m afraid I don’t have any experience with that kind of incubator. I see you have posted in the incubation section, hope other members there can offer you some advice.

    Good luck & enjoy your time here on BYC :frow
