THE REVIEWS ARE OFF THE CHARTS FOR THIS MODEL
“The Octagon 20 Eco Incubator that includes the auto turning cradle is a very good quality unit. My hatches end up being strong and the chicks are lively from the start, which means they are healthy. We are getting almost 100% hatches every time. I give the Octagon 20 with the turning cradle the highest marks and would recommend it to anyone.”
“I put the eggs in and around the 21st day chicks started popping out. Talk about instant chicks. Sure beats having to turn the eggs every few hours. I already feel like a pro “
One reviewer mentioned that they wished they would have bought the model with the humidity pump for added insurance, however most say it is not needed in most climates.
This model is ready to use right out of the box. Just add water, add the eggs and start incubating. It can not get any easier than this.
“This Incubator is simply amazing. With an automatic egg turner it will make you a pro in no time. It is so automatic that all we had to do is add water and we would have a perfect hatch almost every time. The top makes it easy to see what is going on inside, so you can watch them as they hatch. It is so much fun watching the life cycle of chicks. Very educational too… “
”Brinsea Octagon 20 ECO Auto Turn Egg Incubator.
You can find many cheaper incubators, like they styrofoam models, however I chose to go for something of better construction. I was not disappointed as this unit fills my needs perfectly. Just put the eggs in, add water and wait for the hatch!”
