    Am thinking of getting a small incubator out of our tax refund, can't cost much, what is the easiest and most reliable for under $100??

    For around $100 I would buy this Incubator an this turner then get a PC fan an a phone power plug an wire them together an mount it in the incubator.

    If you can put a little more with it you can get this incubator that has the fan already.

    I recommend Making one. I have 2 homemade incubators. Check out my page. I only spent 5 dollars for the cooler, 20 dollars for the PVC pipe and screws, and already had the hardware cloth, already had the light fixture, I had the fan, and the 12 volt adapter. My cooler incubator holds 20 eggs, and is the most reliable incubator I have. In my Little Giant Incubator, and my Brower Top Hatch, the thermostat went out. In my Rcom mini incubator the turner went out. The only incubators that I have that are actually reliable, are my cooler incubator, and my fridge incubator.
