    Is this a good incubator to get? does this have a egg turner in it or do i need to turn them? ~AJ~

    If that's the 30 dollar one on amazon, the reviews were pretty mediocre. Not sure it's worth getting something that cheap -- if it sounds too good to be true, it usually is.

    I am quite sure those have ruined more eggs than they will ever hatch. If 30.00 is all you can spend, buy a wafer thermostat off ebay for 25.00 and put a light bulb in a styrofoam cooler. you now have a still air bator. Add the fan from your old computer and you have a pretty darn good forced air incubator.... or save up for the brinsea eco 20. I did both, both running for the last 2 months straight. Neither have varied more that 2 deg. Bill

    Those incubators have broke more kid's hearts than santa not coming down their chimney. It's a peice of plastic with a light bulb. Takes einstein to come up with a contraption as advanced as that. Seriously buy a Brinsea or Hovabator. Throw that and the LG out the window...

    Quote:i have used LG incubators for over 15 years now have 2 now with silkie eggs in both.and have hatched hundreds of eggs in them. with no problems at all. it is a good cheap incubator. if you add a computer fan it is then a great incubator. the lg sells for around $45 at the feed store here in town. give it a try you will like it
