Choosing an incubator help!

Have one but have had problems so I'm shopping for a new one or possibly two. We have chickens, pheasants and guineas.

We need to know your budget, how many eggs, etc

Japanese, OEG, Sebright, Brahmn, d'Uccle, and EE bantams; and RIR, BR, and EEs, Golden Penciled Hamburg, EEs, Anconas, Bielefelders, Wheaten Marans, Speckled Sussex, and a surprise variety of bantams with breeds tbd!

 

16 guineas and 2 turkeys to round out the flock

 

Another victim of poultry math. Aiming for a "designer" flock and egg basket :)

Bear with me and my site navigation. I could hatch about 2dozen. Can spend about $350. I'm looking at Brinsea but I'm open to suggestions.

Brinsea is definitely one of the top incubators to consider is you have the $$.  I also know a few R-COM people that tout their incubators in the same manner as Brinsea lovers.

I need something pretty foolproof. Our present no-name incubator doesn't seem to hold temperature well. It's also hard to clean. As I learned after the kaboom incident. Has anyone considered dropping spoiled eggs on enemy combatants?

Found a brinsea octagon 40 at front gate so looks like I'm in business.

My husband didn't like the price but must have changed his mind.
