    I am looking to get an inexpensive incubator to use at home and in the kindergarten class of my children's school. Can someone recommend a good one? I tried to do a search as I'm sure this must be a topic that has been covered but I didn't find anything.

    Thanks

    Best bang for your buck. The Hovabator wafer thermostat is the way to go. User friendly and ultra reliable. You can get a forced air model 2362 for $83 new but sometimes you'll find a good used one on ebay.

    Still air are easy to use just remember to take temperature at top level of eggs and run temp 101-102F this way instead of 99.5F like in a model with fan.
