    Now I find myself looking at more incubators...I started with a Hovabator and then graduated to the King Suro R Com but I am finding it has eggs in it when I want to buy MORE... [​IMG] Where do I go from here?...Should have just bought a cabinet incubator to start with!... [​IMG]

    I have spent enough money already that I could have bought a cabinet incubator for just a little bit more!...I need a new hobby or a new incubator! [​IMG]

    Believe me, you're not alone. I have 3 Hovabators & considering how much I've spent on eggs this year with them, I'd be in big trouble with DF if I had one of those big cabinet incubators [​IMG] Doesn't keep me from wanting one, though [​IMG]

    I had 2 Sportsman but sold 1. I love it... Check places like Craigslist for a good used one. That is how I found mine and ended up buying 2.

    It's an older Sportsman 1202. We did replace the wafer thermostat with a digital thermostat. The digital thermostat does keep the temp much steadier.

    The Sportsman I sold had a solid wood door. I like the poly door much better because I like to see the eggs.

    I also put it up on a table.
