Newbie Incubaitor??

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Hi all,

 

I started out a few months ago with getting chickens & guineas, and have recently been thinking about purchasing a incubator and hatching eggs. I think finding the right incubator has been the hardest part of the whole process so far. I found one online and wanted to see if anyone else had this same one, and was it a decent one. My biggest concerns is that it is not made of styrofoam and that it has a turner & holds humidity pretty well. Thoughts??

Janoel knockoff...ehhhh My nephew got one of these and temps and humidity were off. I would go with a Hovabator before the chinese bator.  Even though Hovabators are styros I know many  many more people recommend them than these.  I myself use a styro and have awesome hatches.
