    I have just ordered a Surehatch model 90 incubator and was wondering if anybody else has one of these - I would really appreciate your comments on it. My DH reckons I didn't do enough research and that its going to be a dud especially cause its not an automatic turner, but its the only one I can afford right now. I am so excited I can hardly contain myself.[​IMG] Never thought hatching a couple of chicks would be such an almightily exciting and overwhelming prospect...Sheesh I must really get out more! I think everybody thinks I've gone nuts. At least I know theres more than a couple of people on here that know what I'm on about......

    Nvm
    I went and found one on the inter net I have a few comments the first being that it looks like a really good price for a table top with fan and turner you cant get any around here for that good a price as far as I know.
    Second is it reminds me of the homemade chic chick bator .. kinda coolerish looking.
    Have you hatched anything befor?

    [​IMG] YEHAAA I'm not the only one. Thats just fabulous! Okay, Its made by the same company that distributes Hovabators, GQF and Dickey, so I thought you guys might be familiar with it, but it looks like its probably made locally which is even more worrying.(Please don't tell me that my DH is right...) It is made of polystyrene adn sits on the counter. Here's the rest...
