    Have one but have had problems so I'm shopping for a new one or possibly two. We have chickens, pheasants and guineas.

    Bear with me and my site navigation. I could hatch about 2dozen. Can spend about $350. I'm looking at Brinsea but I'm open to suggestions.

    Brinsea is definitely one of the top incubators to consider is you have the $$. I also know a few R-COM people that tout their incubators in the same manner as Brinsea lovers.

    I need something pretty foolproof. Our present no-name incubator doesn't seem to hold temperature well. It's also hard to clean. As I learned after the kaboom incident. Has anyone considered dropping spoiled eggs on enemy combatants?

    Found a brinsea octagon 40 at front gate so looks like I'm in business.

    My husband didn't like the price but must have changed his mind.
