    Okay so I want to get a new incubator I am fine with one that only does like 3 at a time up to 12 or even more. I just need one cheap. I would like an auto turner too.

    You'll want the Hovabator Genesis 1588 with auto turner. Can hatch up to 41. Plug and play.

    You will get what you pay for if you buy a cheap one. I am currently using a borrowed LG because my Hova Bator 1588's sensor got broken off and I hate it! I miss being able to add water, plug my Hova in and just adding eggs to the turner. I am constantly having to babysit this LG, because the temp. keeps going up and down. It's been awful and I can't wait until my new parts for my 1588 get here this week.

    Just something to keep in mind if you are going for cheap.

    Don't get an LG!!! Either make your own or get a Hovabator. I purchased 2 LG"s yesterday and I'm still having problems with them.

    Good luck!
