After our ultimately disastrous first attempt at using our incubator this is just the ticket. (We had one live chick, but just as pipping started the heater in the incubator packed in, resulting in a cold, low humidity environment - just what new-born chicks don't need. Despite our best efforts to rig up a suitable substitute with a heat lamp the poor wee mite only lived an hour or so.)

Presenting the Go Egg Incubator - computer controlled and managed, just add water, electricity and fertilised eggs and 21 days later you've got chicks.

hehe.. that's a bit freaky.. Looks like a pink version of our vegetable steamer. I guess it's not all that different. So have you actually got one yet?

I suppose it is just like a vegetable steamer, only a bit cooler! We'll not be getting one, having invested in our semi-automatic job (now fixed) which can hold 24 eggs at a go. The 3 egg capacity of the Go Egg is a bit limiting...
