After using a similar styrofoam model for 6 prior hatches with results ranging from 40% to 75% hatch rate, I purchased this model because of the features. Large Egg capacity, air circulation, egg turner, & viewing windows & of course, price.
I read other reviews which warned about not to trust the thermometer & thermostat. I figured that my digital thermometer would take care of any short comings.
After delivery, added some water Ran the incubator over night making adjustments to get within the range of 99.5-100 degrees. This took many adjustments quickly discovering that the two supplied thermometers were useless.
I added 30 Black Cooper Maran eggs from my own flock, checking and making minor adjustments as required throughout the day. After 7 days candled the eggs finding out that all were fertile. So, maybe all was good?
Over the new 2 weeks, I checked on the incubator at least 6 times per day making sure the temperature & moisture were in the correct ranges. All seemed fine. Turned off the egg turner 4 days before the expected hatch. When this batch was started, an additional 12 eggs was put under a brooder hen. On the 20th night the last check on the incubator was fine. Went to sleep expecting to welcome the sound of chirping chicks. On the morning of the 21st day, I checked on the hen. Half her eggs had hatched. Then went to see the incubator, to my horror the digital thermometer read "105"! Not sure why it spiked, but brought the temp back done. Ended up with two chicks out of 30.
Will try one more hatch. But not feeling confident.
On a three day trial prior to putting eggs in we noticed that the digital temperature was off by 3 degrees and we noticed that the humidity was off by 7%. Once we got all the curves figured out and installed the egg turner along with the eggs after the first 24 hours the automatic egg turner quit working and again the temperature and humidity were all over the place making it virtually impossible to maintain any type of stable environment within the incubator.
We contacted customer service through email and didn't get so much as a response we called the company and they told us of their warranty policy and abruptly hung up on us we then contacted the company by a letter and they promised to send a replacement egg turner and apologized for the horrible customer service needless to say the new egg turner never arrived. Ironically on the day we file a complaint with the Better Business Bureau they ship out a replacement egg turner FedEx 2nd day air.
This is an extremely horrible product in the company's customer service is just as bad as the quality of their product I would highly suggest investing a few more dollars and getting a much better quality incubator such as a Hova Bator.
