This incubator certainly has quite a bit going for it. Even though it has a relatively high price tag for the number of eggs that it incubates, the features here just don’t stop. This is a very cool, very innovative incubator.
Let’s start with one thing that I absolutely love in incubators- adjustable trays. This incubator includes a universal tray, which allows you to incubate various sized eggs at the same time by changing the spacing of the dividers. I am prone to incubating strange eggs, and like to be able to seamlessly move between them without having to buy different components or trays specifically for that egg type. There are lots of situations that would warrant you incubating a different egg size than you typically do, and to be able to do that with ease earns super brownie points in my book.
The R-Com 20 also has buttons and lights that excite me. There are buttons for adjusting temp, buttons for adjusting humidity, a setting button and a turning button. There are lights indicating the heat is working, the egg turner is working, the humidity pump is working, and a light that lets you know if you are out of water. There is so much information and functionality in this one little control panel that you can see what is going on at a glance and quickly make any desired changes to your incubation environment. It even saves your settings in the result of a power outage, so when it comes back on, everything is just how you want it to be, not at some strange factory default.
I also like the overall size and design of this incubator. It gives great visibility of all of the eggs with the large viewing window. It is not incredibly big or bulky, and fits easily on my countertop. With a weight of about 10 lbs, it is light enough to move and store as needed, but heavy enough to feel stable and grounded when in position. The R-Com 20 incubator is durable, and popular with high-end bird breeders, or those that want the best for their chicks.
