    I have 200 to spend on an incubator. It needs to have an auto turner, easy to regulate temp and humidity and the largest size possible without sacrificing quality. Suggestions?

    i would say the Hovabator 1588(which is the genesis). its electronic thermostat with circulating fan. And with the auto egg turner it holds 42 eggs.

    We have a 1588 with the egg turner and spent under $200.00 shipped, we have just recently used it for the first time ever and hatched 38/42 eggs, we love it and all we did is add water and plug it in.

    you could get a Brower top hatch for under 200 and no need for different size turners. And cleaning is a breeze.
