    I know there are probably many threads for this, but I am wanting a new incubator that can hold more then 3 eggs. I payed $150 for my r-com mini, is there a good quality incubator at there that is under $200 and has an automatic egg turner?

    If you get lucky on their monthly Facebook coupon code, you can get a Brinsea Octagon ECO with an egg turner with right at $200 shipping included. I LOVE mine! I have been able to stuff 28 eggs in at a time before.

    If you don't mind used try craigslist. I purchased my GQFs for $233 each and they are the best! [​IMG] and I sold my LGs with fans and turners for $100

    Quote:I was considering the brinsea Eco, but after I saw the price for about 400$ I changed my mind. But if I can get it for about $200 I might.

    The Advance is the expensive one, the ECO is cheaper! And I have had no problems with it, it is a great incubator!

    I see them on Craigslist every now & then....honestly, the best small incubator (besides a broody hen) that I've used at the turbo fan hovabators with the auto turners. I get the best hatch rates out of those. The big bator I have is good, too...but not if you only want to hatch a few dozen eggs...
