    Has anyone used them for bantam eggs? I have a friend who would like to buy one. She has OEGB and i would like to know how it holds bantam eggs? Any input would be appreciated [​IMG]

    Lurky, I have used them as well adn they seem to work just fine as long as the eggs are not super tiny like serama or something. Then she might want a quail tray for the turner [​IMG]

    Hi lurky, I use the hovabator 1602n with a turner, no fan and it works well. You have to keep an eye on the temperature and humidity a few times a day, otherwise it dries out and either cools off or heats up, depending on your weather, but if you want to do the extra vigilance you can have a decent hatch from it. Wish it was forced air.

    Do any of them with the big window have forced air?
