Which incubator?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I was wondering if there are any cheap incubators that are fully automatic and fairly reliable? I don't want to splash out as it would just be for a bit of fun. I wouldn't be too bothered about how many eggs it can hold! I live in the UK, not sure if that makes a difference.

I have the Brinsea Mini Advance. It is not cheap (USD180) but I compared it with the cheaper stuff at the store and found that when you add up all the "extra" components you can buy to add on to the cheaper, manual, incubator to make it automatic, the price was not that much different.

 

I have the say the Brinsea really is fully automatic. I just add water every other day.

Completely agree with boymeetschicken. I bought a Little Giant 9300 for around $44, add the egg Turner for around the same amount and the fan kit for around the same amount again and you have $160ish into an incubator of questionable quality. I returned all of the LG stuff & bought the Brinsea mini advanced for around $180. Love the Brinsea - only drawback is egg capacity.

The Hovabator Genesis is a great styrofoam incubator. It has electronic controls, but you will need a secondary thermometer/hygrometer.
