    I'm thinking of purchasing an incubator. I've looked at tons of them, read alot of threads here, and well it's overwhelming to say the least:)

    I only want to try a few eggs, dozen or less, I want one that is basically 'set it and forget it', with an auto egg turner and probably a fan? One that doesn't break the bank:)

    So throw out your recommendations to a newbie like myself I would love any suggestions:)
    Thanks in advance

    I've looked at the DIY's, I don't think I have that much faith in myself to do it right:)

    I bought a Brinsea mini advanced. It does cost a bit more, but after all the research they seem to have one of the best hatch rates, easy to operate, and fully automatic. I am on my first hatch with it, so we'll see how it does.
