Best Styrofoam incubators and why

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I already have a non-styrofoam and want to invest in a second, styrofoam one. It needs to have an automatic turner, I dont have the time to turn the eggs. Also I prefer circulated air, but am open to arguments for still air. I'm really looking for easy to set temperature, automatic egg turning, and reliability. I hatch chicken and guinea eggs. Thanks!

Look at the hovabator line, especially the 1588 model. Hovabators have the best reviews for styros. Don't go with Little Giant, they are cheap, but it falls in the "you get what you pay for" line.  Farm innovators I've seen very mixed reviews on, some love them others not so much, but you never know how much is product quality and how much is user error.
