    OK so I was just wondering if there is an incubator out there that controls it's own humidity and temp. I would like the cheapest one that you just put your eggs and water in and leave it. If you know of one that does this please let me know name, model number, price and were to find it. Thanks

    My husband bought me the r-com mini. It only holds 3 eggs, but is great. It beeps when the water is too low, manages its own humidity and temp and turns the eggs until 2 days before hatch, then stops. Very nice and easy

    The genensis 1588 pretty much does the temp for you.Its preset to the correct temp and you just add the water and plug it in.I am doing my first hatch in it now.You have to check the water level/humidity but for the most part everyone says its the easiest one to use and its a good price.Cutler supply sells it the cheapest, if they are backordered and you can't wait then Stromberg's has them too.I got the whole system, circulated air, turner etc. for approx $170.00 or under . I got that one because everyone on this board seems to use it and recommends it.They say you just plug it in , add eggs and are good to go and so far that has been my experience as well.

    We just are first ones using an hovabator 1588 VERY VERY easy to use if you take good care of it it will last a very long time in the long run it is a better deal than that r com

    Well, yes, the Genesis looks to be the very best of the styrofoam bators, drastically superior to my LG still airs. The reason I got an RCom is because it automatically regulates itself for ideal humidity; even when you open the lid, it goes right back immediately. So, no more worrying about OHNO I need to open the bator but I can't. Just open it, remove chick(s), put lid back on, instant perfect humidity without worrying about the others. At $379, it's a little over twice what the Genesis costs, though... Depends on what you want for the money.
