    Pretty much incubator you wanted (for home use and hatching small scale not some HUGE thing, a table top) what would you buy and why?
    factor in "ease" of use
    money is somewhat of an option but not the driving force in my decision.
    thanks!

    With my aditive personality I would get the sportsman type with the hatcher in the bottom and three trays and yeah...table top...those styrafoam are really hard to beat...automatic turners and fan

    I already have what I want, the brinsea octagon 40. Its super easy to use, holds lots of eggs, and the temps stay consistant.

    I have a Hova Bator 1588 and wouldn't trade it for anything in the world! I LOVE it! It came with the temp. pre-set. All I have to do every time I want to hatch any eggs is add water and plug it in! I let it sit for 24 hours to make sure the temp. is right on, but that's it! I've never had any issues with it.

    I have a Hova 1588, and I love it. Its been on since last February, has never been turned off, and has never varied one iota in degree.
