    Don't forget to look at Dickeys - I've heard a lot of people prefer them to other cabinet incubators. I don't own any of them, so I can't give you a personal reccommendation.

    My pleasure!

    It's a family owned business and customer service is awesome. I'm told when you call Dickey's you often get Mr. Dickey himself on the phone. Miss Prissy has one.

    Ive also heard good things about Dickeys, but Ive never had one. We have 3 sportsmans we bought them new in 2000. Never done anything to them. They are great incubators in my opinion. [​IMG]
