    Just wondering if anyone on here has experience with this incubator.
    Found a used one for sell in my area for $140. Good Price? It is a Farm Innovators Model 4200 Pro Series Circulated Air Incubator.

    I have one. Holds temp well but make sure to have your own calibrated temp and humidity gauges. The ones on the system are not accurate. $140 is overpriced for used. You can get them on amazon for $117 and Big R just had them on sale for $115.

    Yes I just saw on Amazon that they were going for $125. Ha, the seller on craigslist used the description from Amazon word for word, so he has to know that is asking too much.

    Thanks for your input. I am just thinking a circulated air might work better than the still.

    Circulated air will work better. Good luck!

    I, too, just got one of these bators and now I'm freaking out.

    I think I'm better off building my own. :/
