    I want to order some eggs, and I know darn well that my broody hen will stop half-way through setting on the eggs (that's how she is). So I want to get the easiest, most idiot-proof incubator out there under 400 bucks or so. Any suggestions?

    I really like my Hovabator 1588. It's preset & very easy to use.

    Brinsea definitely makes the most idiot proof incubators! The eco versions are very foolproof, while the advanced versions are set and forget!!

    I agree Brinsea 100%. You set the eggs and wait for them to hatch with the occasional addition of water to the water channels. I love mine!
