    Where is the cheapest place that I can get the brinsea octagon advanced or eco? WITHOUT auto egg turner? But with the humidity thingy?

    When I bought my brinsea mini advance, the cheapest place believe it or not was the brinsea website. Don't forget to look there!

    And let me get this straight... the humidifier is $119? That's even more expensive than the actual incubator!

    The humidifier is an expensive add on that precisely controls the humidity.... Without it to fill one or 2 troughs in the bottom and adjust the vent to get proper humidity. The troughs need filled every couple of days so they dont go dry.

    I would get a guage for humidity and do it that way.

    Keeping it simple is always better

    Since I got the Brinsea Eco, I dont even use a hygrometer anymore. Just fill up the trays and let er rip. I just use mine for hatching, and have perfect hatches every time.

    We dont need no stinkin hygrometers!
