I have hatched about 50 chickens in my homemade incubators. I never have owned a store bought incubator. I also have a hatch rate of about 80%. Some are 95%. Here is my newest one that I am warming up.
Love the bator sent u a PM
I would say it depends on how handy you are and whether or not you enjoy the building. I have both and enjoyed the building as much as the rest of the process.
I have an antique wooden chest incubator that houses 800+ eggs. Sometimes it's a pain to get the humidity and temperature right on the money, but it's a great machine.
For our next hatch later in the year, I'm planning to make one of MissPrissy incubators, the Chick Bator. It looked simple enough and I think I could get some great pictures from the see through sides. I'll do it as a project with my 3 year old son and we'll post pictures to our blog so our relatives can read it.
