    I am sure I am one of many others who ordered the Brinsea Octagon 20 ECO Incubator [​IMG] after the "Pushers Post " [​IMG] I should have mine Tomorrow or Tue Once I get it set up and on smooth sailing, I have eggs waiting to go in. I needed a fool proff incubator & after reading all the reply's, I think I found it [​IMG] [​IMG] . I just cant wait & I didnt tell BF about it so I cant talk about it at home yet [​IMG] I will wait till its up & running & has eggs in it and wait for him to say were did you get that [​IMG] or how much did that cost, ohhh boy i hope he don't [​IMG] Well if you are one of the ones who ordered & have yours up & running or are waiting any day now for it, Like to hear all about it & what you are hatching [​IMG] [​IMG]
    I am going to be hatching 6 Black / Lavender Split Silkies ( I bought them ) & 3 or 4 of my silkies & show Girl Eggs
    I want to see how this goes before I put to much out on eggs,
    Oh & to The Pusher [​IMG] Thank You [​IMG]

    I am not waitng for mine but I just finished my first hatch in a eco 20.found it to be rock solid temp wise but a little finnicky on humidity but think it was do to heat on in house drying things out. I think there is a lot to learn about this hatching stuff but still managed to hatch 8 out of 11. You will like the brinsea.

    GOOD LUCK ON YOUR HATCH [​IMG]

    I was going to get this incubator but I went with the Genesis Hova-bator instead....

    I have mine full right now and I love this bator. When I can afford it I am going to buy another one.

    I am going to try only 6 eggs. I got 12 chicks hatched few days using the free LG from Craigslist. It works just fine, but keep temperature and humidity stable little hard. There is too much baby sitting. I will remove the LG controller and heat element for brooder & seed plant project.

    After a devestating loss this past week due to a predator, I can clearly see the need for second one.
