    Hi!,I was wondering what would be the best small Incubator that would hold about 4-6 eggs...

    Thanks,Collin

    I know one that would hold 3, which is the R-Com mini. controla everything, just add water every few days (sorry the word-link takes you to an English website.)
    And then there is Mini Eco Incubator from Brinsea. Up to 7 chicken eggs. Autoturning which stops 2 days prior to hatching, temperature and humidity is controlled. This link takes you to the US website.

    Edited becuase I cant type

    I have just hatched my first chicks [​IMG](2 Seramas)[​IMG] in an Eco Mini. I am really pleased with it for just a few eggs (7) and it held a very constant temperature. It uses a small fan to move air, and since it has a dome, it holds the humidity better if you have to hand turn.
