Ok, so for a long time I have been planning on buying day old chicks from a hatchery, but just recently I decided to try and hatch eggs from a breeder. I have hatched duck eggs before in my little giant incubator (with a fan), but the temperature would spike, and humidity was hard to keep steady. I probably had about a 40% hatch rate. Last year, I tried to hatch 20 mix breed chicken eggs that someone gave to me, but while I was gone for a few hours, the temperature spiked to 108F, killing them all. My B-day is coming up, and I think a new incubator would be a good gift to ask for. Does anyone know of a good bator that isn't too expensive? I would LOVE one that stay at 100F w/out having to guess and turn that little knob thing all the time. Any suggestions are welcome!
