Best incubator for Large chicken and duck eggs.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Looking for an incubator for around a 100$ that would be good for both large chicken eggs and duck eggs. any info would be great. 

Currently looking at the Farm Innovators Model 4250. 

 

P.S. Brand spanking new to incubating eggs, Have had previous hatches from broody hens but never taken it upon myself to do it. I am looking for a more frequent hatch, with a higher success rate.

Home made.  Then you can put all the money you save towards more chicken related stuff.  I'll put a home made bator up against a purchased one any day of the week.

I'd still need to buy an egg turner and all the stuff to make one, how much cheaper would it be? (I'm not home enough to turn the eggs as much as needed.)
