    BYC gang, i need help, i am already thinking about spring hatching...(very excited!) its my first time hatching and i cannot decide between buying a 10 egg incubator or a 20 one.

    Either a brinsea mini advance incubator or a brinsea octagon 20 eco incubator.
    What do you think??

    Thanks guys!!

    I have found that chicken math directly correlates with incubator size, therefore to do chicken math correctly you must double the size of your intended incubator and then order 2 of them [​IMG]

    Good luck!

    Why has the Brinsea Octagon Eco gone up $40 is the last year? Seems it has priced itself out of range. I think they know it is popular, so decided to take advantage. I always wanted one, but now I will get something else. I can get a Hovabator Genesis 1588 with egg turner & electronic thermostat for only $50 more. JMHO
