    I personally like the brinsea one better! Just my opinion.

    http://www.lyonelectric.com/ many models can be found here. I lucked out and found a fantastic used one for an even better price. It holds temps better than I expected.

    WOW, there is a huge difference in the number of eggs they will hold. How many are you planning on hatching at a time? Ive never used either one of them, so I will leave that to someone else, but for you people that want a link to Lyon

    BTW, I've used Lyon Incubators for 40 years & consider them one of the best small incubators you can buy, but they are not cheap

    Mine holds like 90, but I won't fill it! I am hatching a few different breeds. Right now I have Blue Breda, BBS marans, blue wheaten marans, a lone wheaten marans, some BLR Wyandottes, and some Swedish flower hens. I'm hatching some for a friend as well. I will keep my favorites, and offer the other ones at a few weeks. After fighting the temp on my other one, I stumbled upon an ad for mine. After hearing its rave reviews, I snatched it up and I am SO glad I did. It has been so reliable. It is worth every penny.

    Quote: Are you referring to a Lyon incubator?? That holds 80 eggs? A Roll -X?

    I think a Lyon is a little out of my price range for no more eggs than I will ever hatch but who knows?
