just to let everyone know, ive been in touch with the shop that i bought my incubator from and they have changed it for a new one. i am now wondering if this was the reason i had 2 dead in shell in february. the smell then wasnt as bad as its been over the last two day, but it makes me wonder. i hope the eggs will be ok this time.....tiggy :D :D

That is so bad.. they must know what the problem was to replace it so quickly! I really hope this hasn't affected your eggs :wacko:
Have you contacted the makers and asked them why this has happened, if it made it not work properly and if it could have been to blame for your undeveloped eggs?

Bless you, these eggs are so precious

I can only hear a whirring noise when it is establishing the correct temp, it heats up then cools down so mine came on now and again..
The one i use which was faultless and proved 100% effective was http://www.surreypet...-incubator.html

Hope yours works ok but if in doubt ask for a refund and maybe order one from Surrey Pet supplies, I order from them all the time and they have some great products and at really good prices..

jeanette, i was asking about yours because my old one was so noisy and this one i cannot hear it much. this one is the newer model, the same as yours with 2 shelves. it works a lot better than the old one and no smell. i just hope that the old one hasnt affected the eggs......tiggy
