    If you had a choice between the Dickeys or the brinsea 380 which would you get? I am leaning towards a Dickeys the reg bator 3 with 1 hatcher or the 2x2 or a bator and a hatcher. Which one makes more sense to get for the money and time.

    Brinseas have a good reputation and are VERY reliable. Their quality is great. I would go with the brinsea though. There the best!

    I've seen lots of opinions both ways.

    If I had the money and the room for more chickens. The brinsea.

    I've got a Dickey 2x2 and like it right well. Had a wonderful first-time hatch with it.

    But Brinseas also have a good reputation.

    Given that both are good equipment I'd go with whichever one I could find at the best price.
