    do you have any ranch supply stores around you like Big R, Murdochs or Quality supply? They usually sell an incubator there for around 40-50 dollars. OR check ebay.

    I ordered the Hova Bator (1602???) from Jeffer's Livestock, it is a forced air (important to me; I didn't want the still air) without the turner (not important to me; I don't mind turning) for around $75, free shipping. Jeffer's doesn't have a lot of poultry supplies, but they ship fast and cheap and have the best customer service ever!

    The cheaper LG that Stevie is talking about is gonna be a still air. I really recommend spending the extra $$ and getting one w/a fan. If $75 is your budget, I'd get the Hova Bator from Jeffers.

    The difference is still air has hot spots where forced air elimnates hot spots
