    I am looking for incubator for less than $150 that has the set temp. I just want to be able to put in eggs and water and forget it. What do you all reccomend, and do any of you have one? Where could I get one?

    The Hova bator Genesis 1588. I've got 2 of them and the 1590 the older version of them. I like mine a lot.

    Plenty of folk here have posted about high hatch rates with this brand.

    It's not MY personal favourite, but at the price is hard to beat [​IMG]

    I've had what I feel are good hatches with them. Especially on my own eggs. Shipped eggs vary from batch to batch.

    I have the Hovabator 1588, and have my first set of eggs in it. So far it has been really easy to use. The one you are seeing for $110 probably does not include the turner. You will have to hand turn the eggs.

    As I said, not much choice under $150
