    Shipping will depend on location, I'll need a zip code to give the PO.
    I used it twice, it did a great job, I just don't need so many incubators anymore I'm cutting down on chickens and animals.

    This is still available as of 3/18. It weighs a little over 9.5 lbs pounds to mail and the average price I've checked so far comes out to about $18.50. Several people have sent me zip codes to check, so the average is taken from them.

    Can you tell me about the Hovabator models? I mean, is there a way to adjust temp, or is it pre-programmed and never needs adjusting, etc...? I'm using a Little Giant styrofoam one right now...and it's got the water channels in the bottom, and the thermostat knob that I have to tweak every couple days or so as weather changes. Does the Hovabator differ in this regard?

    ETA: Does is circulate air, or is it a still-air model?

    It is electronically pre set to 99.5 degrees, it is circulated air. I used it in my classroom in a controlled environment and it held the temperature perfectly. It has the same plastic water holder in the bottom to control the humidity so you do have to pay attention and add as needed. This one does not have the digital display I used a digital thermometer with a hygrometer in it I bought at Wal Mart for $5 so I could see the temp and humidity together.
