    I have always had chickens and I have taken care of my fair share of baby chicks, but I want to try my hand at hatching eggs. I have no clue what to look for in an incubator. I was thinking maybe something that can carry 24 eggs minimum.

    What is your price limit?

    I really like the Hovabator Genesis 1588 with the picture window. I need to be able to see in really well, and it needs to hold temperature without fooling with it. This incubator has worked really well for me. It can hold up to 42 eggs in the egg turner :)

    I was thinking about $150-200 which this seems to be. I read a whole bunch of reviews on it and everyone seems to like it and says it is a good incubator for newbies thank you

    No problem. It's right in your price range if you don't mind turning yourself. It cost me $250 after shipping and duty was included. $230 cdn off of ebay. $20 in customs.
