i I have the digital Octogon one. And it works great. I ordered one of the 60's and the seller contacyed me so she could order it for me from China (drop ship), several days ater I had bought it.

If you don't mind it taking awhile to get to you  and yo get a good price , I guess it would be OK.

I ordered Mine from "orcid" On saturday and got it on Tues.

personally I would get one that has no Styrofoam, and make sure you can get replacement parts easily. most incubators don't break down often, but when they do its always on Friday at 11 pm on a holiday weekend.

4 daughters, 1 grand daughter, 1 wife, 1 son in law, some quail, some turkeys, 4 dogs, and around 45 breeds of chickens. lost count of my chickens about 200 birds ago. (im not a hatchery, im not obsessed, im not a horder, I just like to collect)

Well I don't think I'll buy that one... now back to Square one?    Which Incubator?

if you have a small flock, brisnea makes some pretty good incubators. they are a little more expensive but most of their owners love them. personally I haven't had one, but am impressed by people's reaction on here about them.

 

if you have a larger flock, you might look at GQF sportsman type incubators. I currently have 3 of them, 2 with over 90% hatch rates. the 3rd is customized for larger eggs and I think that's why it isn't quite as good.

Never had a problem with the hova-bators. I have hatched hundreds of eggs with them. Now Little Giant and Farm Innovators is a different story.

i had better luck with little giant than i did hovabator - with exception of i wish they made the plastic liners for little giants.  ive hatched hundreds from both brands, and in all honesty i dont think theres a nickels worth of difference.

 

several people have had great luck with building a wooden box about the same size as the styrofoam incubator, and moving all the electronics across.  i would do away with the solid state thermostat and use a wafer, but that again is a personal preference.
