    I'm looking to buy an incubator to hatch out my own chicks. I would want to hatch anywhere from 4 to 12 eggs at a time. 12 being once a year and 2to 3 eggs 2 times a year. Any advice on a good small incubator that does most of the work for me? Thank you

    I would recommend a Little Giant Still Air Incubator with turners built in. This incubator is very easy to adjust the temperature and if you buy the egg turners it makes it so much easier then having to turn the eggs every day. I comes with a built in water holder on the bottom of the incubator that you put water in for humidity purposes. Also comes with small windows on the top so that you can see them hacthing without taking off the lid and disturbing the hatching process. I hope this helps![​IMG]

    I dont know any bator that holds only 12 eggs. I love my brinsea octagon eco. It holds up to 24 chicken eggs. The temp is automatic. I think its still may be on sale on the official brinsea website.
