    Have had some issues with temperature fluctuation. After a bad first and second hatch it seems best to do a dry incubation with this model up until lock down. Then the sponge method seems to be the best for keeping an even level of humidity for several days. It also says to set the temp for 38° c but my second Fahrenheit thermometer inside reads that at about 91-93 which is too low. Upping the set temp to 39° c results in 97-99° f, which is where we have kept it at with good results. You could probably set it at 40° but that could get possibly too high? The tray itself holds 9 normal sized chicken eggs. I have tried every conceivable configuration to fit more than 9 regular sized eggs with zero luck. Currently I’m incubating 10 with one outside the tray, but it rolls with the tray as it moves so we’ll see if that one hatches. The bantam eggs I have had in there easily fit more than 12. I debated giving this 4 stars because of the temp problems and the issues with late chicks and mortality I’ve had but now that I’ve figured this out and can pass this information along I feel like it’s worth 5 stars. This is a pretty cool, budget friendly incubator.

    This was my first attempt hatching eggs. We had bantam silky eggs that we ordered by mail, and 2 eggs that a hen abandoned in the last week. We decided to take a chance and added standards to the incubator while the bantams were already incubating. Both hatched a week earlier than the bantams. I didn’t use the automatic turner as I believe that life touching life is necessary for a good hatch. I turned the eggs 3x a day and held them for a moment. I made sure that while I was doing that, fresh air came into it. We had 8 of 8 bantam eggs hatch, one died during the hatch but the other 7 are doing fabulous one week out.[Standards 2 weeks out] I never adjusted the temperature after the first day. I did have to buy a humity meter and I did my best to keep it between 65%-75% during the two hatches. I incubated them on my kitchen counter where I could keep an eye on them and they could listen to music while I was cooking.

    I ordered this so we could start hatching our own chicks. I have some Black Crested Polish and some Buff Cochin’s that I would like more of and since this was on sale I thought it would be a good time to grab it. I was able to fit 9 eggs in the tray (4 Polish and 5 Cochin) with enough room for them to properly rotate. Once plunged in the unit heated up quickly and has maintained the correct temp and humidity. I appreciate that there is a hole on the top of the lid so you can add an external digital thermometer / hygrometer without having to open the lid. The display will flash when the temp drops down below your lowest temp setting but it does not make any sound. It would be nice if it included an audio alarm as well. The instructions are not as bad as others posted but I did have to read through it a few times to fully understand. If all else fails, Google was very helpful. I am only on day 3 of incubating and will update this as I progress through our first hatching cycle.
