    200 pounds is a lot for an incubator. How big of one were you looking for?

    For setting up to 42 eggs-
    I really like the hova bator. We have an older model 1583. It's got the full clear top for easier viewing and fan. The thermostats in Hova bators are very user friendly to adjust and hold steady temperature.

    Here is a good deal currently on eBay that includes auto turner http://www.ebay.com/itm/Picture-Win...A%2BFICS%2BUFI&otn=21&pmod=380121058385&ps=54

    This same seller has listings for unit without auto turner for 50 dollars less. For more money you could look into the Genesis model # 1588.
