Has anyone experienced the R-COM 20 incubator?

Im thinking of buying a R-Com 20 incubator but im not sure whether its worth it.

It all sounds pretty good especially when you've eggs that you paid lots of money for that you really want a good hatch rate.

Not sure. :?

It does sound good - all singing, all dancing etc. :lol: But I don't know of anyone who's used one yet & people use other types of incubator & still have good hatch rates.
Happy in Hampshire!

I've been yearning for one of these but now am not so sure, heard some really mixed reports back of issues with humidity sponge causeing problems and people having to wack extra water in due to that. well to me whole point of paying so much for that incubator is that it is easy and trouble free...if it isn't doesn't seem worth it :(
I still fancy one but think I'll wait till they have sorted out teething differculties. prehapse released on sale before issues fully sorted (?)and not funny at that price.
I get good hatches from my octogan20 but for differcult stuff had hoped the r-com could be answer. maybe not yet though.

My hubby bought me a RCom20 as a combined birthday/xmas pressie in May and I love it - I've been using it non stop to hatch various quail, with over 95% successful hatch rate, it would probably be higher with a more experienced user, but I've had no problems with humidity or the sponge. I cant recommend it highly enough
