I am a newbie, have never had chickens, just in process of building a coop/run. Had planned on getting 1 day olds or ready to lay depending on when I finish my build. My sister has just moved onto an acreage whose owner keeps chickens, geese, ducks, lambs. She visits me regularly and will bring fertilized eggs on her next visit in July - mild panic! I have started to read about incubators, see prices from $30 to $300 or more, note that there are both still and circulating air types, have learned that temperature and humidity controls are critical, understand that hatching is a hit and miss process for many people. There will no doubt be very good primers on this forum but would appreciate any advice and links to good posts/articles that would help me decide what I should buy. Thanks in advance.
