good bator efectivly and inxpensivly,

A few competing factors there ......

Excellent, Good and Satisfactory are all different. In the end it comes down to a combination of what is acceptable to the user, in terms of effort and cost, considering obtainable hatch rates.

Hatch rates for small table-top incubators are reasonable at around 70%. For more sophisticated set-ups figures in excess of 90% are achievable. These come at a price, and with experience.

70% is good and effective at a $150 price point, but less so at $500.

Search on here for *homemade incubator* ... you will get lots of ideas.​
