I purchased a new incubator about 2 weeks ago

it is a 59 egg incubator

the initial impressions reminded me of a Jaonel 24

It appears well made

Checking the temperature with a thermometer the calibration seemed very good at least on this one.

it has a rocking style egg turner

the water reservoir on the bottom is quite large and of you fill one side and the humidity is about 45%

Interestingly the curricular ring is for an ultrasonic humidifier. My incubator does not have this feature.

there is a readout for temperature and humidity

The fan, heater and electronics are inside the lid

one interesting feature that I have not seen on basic incubators the this is the time between turning can be adjusted.

there is also a counter for the days if you want to set it you need to go into the settings to access this.

it seems the alarm vales cannot be changed (how much variation before the alarms sound)

I purchased mine from an importer in Adelaide and it comes with a 3 year guarantee.

It seems quite good however I will from a better opinion after several hatches.

I have seen these incubators on line but have always been a little sceptical about how good they actually are. Would you be able to keep us posted on the results of your hatchings

on the hatch rates I got 5 dozen eggs from a regular supplier ! put 2 dozen in the QW-59 and 3 dozen in my "industrial" Chinese incubator both gave hatch rates in the order of 80% (about 10 chicks per dozen eggs).

the incubator struggles to keep cool enogh when the abent temperature is about 34 C.

it is likely that there will be some incubators with an ultra sonic fogger to control the humidity it fits in the round well in the base these will likely give higher humidity than a passive system and also allow operation in higher temperatures.

I don't know what happens to these foggers if they run out of water.

I will PM you the details of the supplier.

I am going to purchase another incubator and this seems to be a reasonable one to buy. I was wondering where you purchased this one because it has a much better warranty than other outlets offer their purchasers

I purchased it because the size suited me and the guarantee may the risk seem small
