    For under $300, I can recommend a HovaBator, which is a step up from a Little Giant but still a little temperamental. Or an Incuview, these are very nice.

    If you're willing to drop a little more money, there are the Brinseas, which I use and love.

    The only one with an egg capacity of forty is the HovaBator. The others are more stable and reliable but hold less eggs.
