    Which one would you buy and why? I'm tempted by incubators, despite the terror involved. I'm probably going to bite the bullet and build one first, but I'd like to know more about who uses what and why? Thanks. You chickenaholics are killing me, I'm more tempted by things I'd never dreamed of wanting after spending wayyyyy too much time here.

    Genesis hova-bator 1588. Get a turner too...it's worth the extra money to me.

    Any small incubator regardless of price would be hands down a Lyon TX-6 or 7. The price is a lot higher than the foam ones but so much more worth it IMO.
