    I duno what is that people say make these bator not work . i bought one and i had it sent to my uncles and hes supposed to be sending me it. He lives in omaha and its taking for ever. he hasn't got to it yet but here are sum tips. I dont think there is a reservoir for water in ther but i recommend misting eggs every so often for humidity . If temps are to low you can put a towel over it . since it realizes a lot of humidity when you open it try candling evry 10 days . You can so easy turn the eggs by picking it up and just tilting it and they will roll a little .

    These are a few ways you can work you little yellow incubator. ( its a small unit only holds three. More for kids than us breeders her e but if you have one use these techniques . _)

    ps after i have one hatch oput of it. I'm taking it apart for spare parts for my new incubator models ( hope it has a thermostat )
