    My mom said we can get more chickens if I know for sure that they're females. On my Christmas list is an incubator.....already! I want to hatch more bantams and maybe some true araucanas! I love them!

    Just a little tip, if you are going small on the incubator
    DO NOT BY ANY MEANS GET A LITTLE GIANT.

    They will not hatch squat!. Spend a little more and get a good Hovabator. I have several of them, and the larger Sportsman cabinet incubators too.

    I tried the LG's one year, they killed everything I put in them, it wouldnt even work for the last 3 days as a hatcher. The temp fluctuations were crazy in it.

    Hova's however like I always saw, will hatch rocks if you were to put one in there...
    Get forced air, I never get turners, just hand turn 2-3 times a day. This gives you over double the egg capacity, and I always have a massive difference in the hatch when I hand turn compared to turners, not sure why, but hand turning is 100% better for me.

    Anyway, theres some tips on that.
    Hova's are about $80 for the forced air model
    Little Giants, $40

    Old saying, you get what you pay for comes to mind...

    Good luck to the both of you [​IMG]

    Quote:I Agree ,
    I will never use a little giant again !
    Hova Bators are much better,I use them all the time when the Brenseas are full.
    I have had them same hovabator for about 3-4 yrs.
    still works & hatches like new [​IMG]
