    I have a large chicken coop and my chickens are spent(old) so I want to have new chickens to lay but I have never had a incubater and I have very little time at my house so I would like to know what would be the best type of incubater to use that requires little to no supervision
    It can be kind of pricey

    For a set and forget incubator, if you are looking for a tabletop and don't need a ton of room for tons of eggs I recommend the Brinsea 20 Eco with auto turner for up to around 30 eggs at a time, or the Brinsea Mini if you only want to do seven at a time.

    I agree - as a newbie to incubators, I got a Brinsea with humidity pump etc. It literally is just set and forget (just the occasional check on water levels in the reservoir and lock down to deal with). Brinsea have a new range out, that just came on sale last week - maybe check out their website. Brinsea are not cheap, but worth it if you want a hands off approach.
