    Hello all,
    I've never had an incubator. I'm making my Christmas list, and I want the Genesis 1588 with the automatic egg turner for my first bator. I've found them online from $160 to $180.
    I'm trying to figure out how to talk myself into buying it before Christmas..... like right now!
    So, my question is, do they mark up the price of incubators during the holiday season?
    If they do, then (using my chicken logic) it would probably make more sense just to buy it now.... don't ya think? [​IMG]
    Christmas in July...

    Really, you NEED to get it right now anyway because in December it will be too cold for baby chicks. [​IMG]

    Would you like to buy a decent used one with all the parts including chicken and quail trays?
    May be a little stained and could use cleaning but works well.

    I wouldn't mind buying used. I'm new to hatching (not to chickens) and just getting started. It all depends on how used it is and what the price + shipping is!

    I don't know about online but in my area price price of incubators go way up during the winter time, down in the spring. They can be a $10 to $20 difference. So maybe look now. Oh I just got another bator online at www.incubatorwarehouse.com They were alot ceaper then most.
