Hello,

has anyone used one of these?

I'm considering the 12 egg model and wondering if anyone has any experiences?

Thanks in advance,

I have one of these at yome and it is the best incubator i have used to date , love that you can top up water from outside without opening lid each time

I also have one and it works for me. Also like that you can fill the water from outside. The air circulates with a strong fan, so temperatures recover well after opening, e. g., for candling. Not sure if the fan is ideal for chicks. Seems to be OK.... On mine there is a blue indicator light which I think is back to front. It flashes when the temp is good, and does not flash when it is heating. This means it is flashing pretty much all the time, not great unless you can have the unit away from living areas. I'm trying to work out if the light can just be disabled.
