    Our Pekins have started laying and we would like to hatch some of the eggs out as well as when our Welshies start laying. Also, a friend has runner ducks and he wants to hatch out some as well. We decided to go in on an incubator together but know nothing about them. Would appreciate any recommendations Y'all have for an affordable home incubator. Don't need anything fancy, just something that will work. Price is primary concern but not at the cost of functionality. I've looked at the $35 incubators at Tractor Supply but they have mixed reviews online so I don't know if that is the way to go.

    Those look good but way more than we want to spend.

    How much are you looking to spend? The lowest you can spend for the best quality will $150 without a turner. Any cheeper than that still works, but demands a lot more attention and delivers lower hatch rates.
    Plan C is to make your own.
