    Personally I would not buy either one of them.....I got a Hovabator Genesis with auto heat and auto egg turner....may cost you a bit more but so worth the price!

    I was hoping to keep the cost around $50 or less.
    Do these incubators not work?

    I have the second one BUT we bought an egg turner which will be 30-40 more dollars. Ours has hatched three successful batches of chickens and batch of ducklings.

    They will both work. The first is extremely hard to regulate. The Second is fine if you have a stable ambient temperature in the room it is placed. You will have to hand turn the eggs, but until the last 25 years all eggs in the small incubators were hand turned so it is no big deaL.

    I am using the second one right now. I have 18 eggs in it and am on day 6. I do not have an egg turner, so I am turning by hand. It is holding temps great!
