I did a test run of the Borotto® Real 49 Plus Incubator with Humidity Pump with some shipped Icelandic and Swedish Black Hen eggs. Very happy with the reliability of this unit. I was disappointed that I had to pitch about half the eggs after the first candling but that had to do with the shipped eggs rather than the incubator. I found this incubator to be very user friendly. Easy to set up with good clear instructions. Automatic turner is quiet and holds a variety of different sized eggs. At lock down, the turner pulls out easily and the flat tray is placed in the bottom.
Pros: Capacity, it holds 49 eggs. Temp and humidity readings are accurate. Set and forget type of incubator (that could be a con though too.) Fits on a table top. Humidity and temp automatically adjust as needed. Humidity pump pulls water from whatever you use as a reservoir. (I used a large cup.)
Cons: My only complaint is the humidity pump is a little noisy. Until I got used to it, it would wake me up in the middle of the night. It isn't overbearing at all. But it isn't silent either.
Currently, there are 7 chicks hatched out of about 20 eggs. Follow progress of the hatch on our facebook page at https://facebook.com/cluckitallfarms
