Egg Incubator Review: Over all this model performed as expected.   The egg turner turns the eggs over every four hours which saves a lot of time and hassle. [who wants to turn eggs over every four hours by hand?]

The temperature adjustment can be hard to get right at first.  There is an extra temperature gauge that is sat on top of the eggs, this seems to be more accurate.  As with most incubators you are advised to run for 8 hrs to make sure the temperature is correct before putting in eggs.  I would also suggest using some cheap eggs on your first hatch as all incubators have idiosyncrasies that need to be worked out.   There is nothing more discouraging than losing a batch of expensive eggs.   Cheap eggs can be bought on ebay if you do not have any.  Most of the time eggs are pretty cheap over there.  Once you get the heat setting figured out, this incubator does a nice job at incubating.

You can expect a success rate of 80-90 % with this model if you follow directions.  I can not stress enough to practice with cheap eggs and use the 8 hour time period to work out any problems before hatching eggs.
