I've owned this incubator a little over two months.Everything went well with the first hatch but now the auto turner has stopped working. Not such a good investment after all.
EDIT: My fault...after doing a little more research I found that just disconnecting the power will not return original settings. I manually reset the days to hatch and the turner appears to be now working. Happy customer!
I am very satisfied with this incubator. It is very easy to set up and maintain. The humidity is easy to control and the external water ports are great. The built in candler also works great, even for darker brown eggs. The temperature and humidity would quickly reach optimal levels after opening the incubator to candle eggs and remove the chicks. I had a 100% hatch rate the first time and a 98% hatch rate the second time. I had no problem with the chicks pecking into the fan. I am very pleased with this incubator.
I HIGHLY recommend this incubator. I’ve used 2 different incubator for 2 years prior to this one. My success rate was all over the board until this one! With the nurture right incubator I didn’t have to fiddle with the temperature or humidity nearly as much as the previous brands I’ve used. I put 22 eggs in. I candled at day 14 and had 2 quitters and 1 non fertile. And I hatched the remaining 18! The chicks seemed to hatch easier and better because the humidity is controlled better with adding water on the outside. EASY to clean afterwards compared to the styrofoam ones. LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS. Would highly recommend to anyone!
I purchased this incubator and absolutely love it! It keeps temperature and humidity with ease. I have had two hatches of duck eggs and they were both 100%. I am a novice and these were my first tries. I was so pleased with this incubator, that I bought another one and use it for my hatcher due to having two different groups of eggs going into the incubator at different times. On day 25 I put them into the hatcher and in a couple of days, on both occasions, they were all pipping, hatching and perfect in every way! I have a third group of eggs due to go into the hatcher on September 12th. These are different ducks and am hoping I have just as much luck with this third batch as I did with my first two! I definitely recommend this incubator!!!!!
This is not my first incubator but it is the first one with an auto-turner.
Not having to open the incubator 5 times a day to rotate eggs makes all the difference. My incubator stayed consistent and steady with temp and humidity. All the eggs that took, hatched. Out of 19 we put in, two turned out not fertilized, two were early quitters and the rest hatched.
I love the 360 windows so we were able to spot pips from all angles. And it was very easy to set up and to clean afterwards.
