    I was thinking about ordering the Hova-bator thermal air flow incubator from MPC, what are your thoughts? How good was your hatch rate?
    Will it need to be constantly adjusted?

    Works great in a room with a constant temp. Not so great if the room temp fluctuates. I constantly had to adjust the temp with it being in my old house. It's at my shop now and the temp in the room stays pretty much the same day and night. Haven't had to touch it once I got it set right. Set it up and let it run a couple of days before you set eggs so you get the temp adjusted right. My first hatch was excellent. I set eggs from my own birds, had over 85% hatch rate, and that was when It was here at the house. I was home to check the temps all day and night though, and it did drop alot at night, so I had to constantly fiddle with it. I've had other hatches that weren't so great, but they were shipped eggs. All in all, I think it's a good 'bator.
