    Which do you think I should get and why? I have a few quesitions.

    - Which incubator should I get?
    - Why?
    - With the incubator you choose, what has been your best hatch rate?

    Thank you.

    First question... How many do you plan on hatching... The Brisnea will only hold about 24 eggs.. If you are more inclined to small hatches.. The Brisnea is the ONLY way to go... I turn my eggs by hand, but if you don't want to do that, it does have adjustable rails and you can rotate the bator. If you want to go all the way and get the turner, then that is great as well.. IDIOT-MORON proof hatching... Set and forget about the temp. Add a little water every 3-4 days (depending on your enviorment).

    Cleanup.. Soap water... bleachwater done..

    I am a huge fan of Brinsea incubators, with 1 MiniAdvance, 2 MiniAdvance EX, and 3 Octagon20 Advance EX models.

    you the brinsea Compnay really should give BYC members a discount for how many of these suckers we buy or lead people to buy! like frequent flyer miles--the more people that buy one listed under someones name-the bigger the discount that person should get :)
