    Ok, in a fit of chick-addiction, I've ordered eggs which are coming at intervals too far apart to be handled together in my Hovabator 1588. I think I need a "hatcher".
    I've been looking at homemade bators and considering those. However, I've also been thinking of just "building" my hatcher with a couple of clicks and a credit card (if you know what I mean).
    What should I buy to serve as the (cost effective yet easy to control) hatcher sitting next to the Hovabator 1588 with 1610 turner?
    Thanks for your opinons.

    My best advice would get another Hovabator. its the cheapest and temp controlled. so all you gotta do is the humidity.
