    Hi everyone - I've never incubated Eggs before (elementary school doesn't count), and was thinking of getting a Roo around March. I'm not sure if i'll 'stick with it' or anything, so i'm looking for an affordable incubator - it can be small, but preferably fit up to 6 eggs.. i'd prefer it to turn as well. Preferably under $100 or so - suggestions? If it makes a difference, i'm in Canada so they must ship to me.

    For a small hatch, I'd suggest the brinsea mini incubator. It holds 7 eggs and does the turning for you. There's an Eco with a thermometer and there's the Advanced which is digital (and more expensive). I have an Advanced and love it. I believe they do ship to Canada.

    The Eco mini $79.99

    The advanced mini $149

    There's other small incubators out there. Can't think of any off the top of my head...
