Hi all,

I am looking at the 48 egg janoel digital incbuator on the net and was wondering if anyone has bought one previously or knows of anyone who has used one. Was wondering what the quality is like and how well they preform. Do they break easily or do the have longevity?
This is the one i am looking at : http://cgi.ebay.com.au/DIGITAL-48-EGGS-INCUBATOR-FULLY-AUTOMATIC-Free-postage-/270680720828?pt=AU_Pet_Supplies&hash=item3f05d405bc

Thanks

I recently had the experience of seeing one in action. I actually liked the set up and the functions. I recently purchased an IM incubator and didnt look into the janoel at the time- but now wish I had done a little more research into them.

I cant tell you results from using one- but I was actually impressed when I did see it.
I liked the fact it was plastic- but had the foam packing for insulation as well.

Hi Joel,
I recently bought one and had success with it. I'm a complete novice but managed to hatch 8/12 silkie chicks. I bought mine from ebay too. It came with very unhelpful / limited instructions which was frustrating for a first timer like me but I managed. I found it reliable. Only problem was with the thermometer that came with it - I'd recommend you get a decent one elsewhere.
Good luck.
