    How much "would you" pay to rent an incubator for one hatching cycle?

    I don't have an incubator but often think about buying one. Just can't make the plunge right now. So, I'd pay around $20 to rent one I guess. Maybe $30 if I had enough eggs to make it worth it.

    I'd say 20$ a month is good, but I'd personally be afraid of theft. A 150$ brinsea eco w/turner could walk off very easily..

    I'd probably do $20-30 a month as well, but i would probably have a deposit of at least what the incubator was worth that would be returned after you got the 'bator back safely.

    Thank you for all of your feedback. We have a couple of Hovabators that we aren't currently using, and we were thinking about renting them out. So if anyone is looking to rent.... LOL [​IMG] [​IMG][​IMG]

    Quote:I got a hovebator from incubators.org and it was only 59 dollars counting shipping and a thermostat, and I just put my 5 eggs in today. It keeps the temp really good to, just thought I would let you know.
