    We don't want to spend a boat load of money on an incubator but we want one that will do the job for our perkin eggs. Suggestions please.

    Judy has given you some good links and I'm sure there are plenty of BYC members who've had good success with homemade incubators, but I never had any luck with mine, so I bought an inexpensive styrofoam incubator with an air circulating fan and an auto egg turner and had a good hatch rate with it. I don't know if this is within your budget or not, but Murray McMurray has a very nice one at If you go this route, just be sure and get one with an air circulation fan and an auto egg turner. Whatever you end up doing, good luck with your hatches.
