    Looking to spend about $80 on an incubator. Suggest the best I can order for that price? The more eggs I can fit the better

    I personally love and use the hova bator genesis 1588. I also have an auto turner which is not absolutely be necessary but does make life easier. I'm not sure you can get a genesis brand new for $80. Maybe used. Look on Craigslist. I think I paid around $150 for the bator and egg turner together.

    For a hobby bator I can't say enough how much I like this bator. My hatch rate is always in the 90s%. Very low maintenance especially with the auto turner.

    I totally understand budget but keep in mind you get what you pay for. I would avoid generic brand Bators. Go with the best most reputable bator you can afford. Good luck finding what works for you!!!,[​IMG]

    I have the same incubator.....i find it works great.........I paid brand new , $300 with no egg turner... I'm the egg turner.....lol.......It was recommended to me as a great first timers incubator as it takes out most of the guess work.......On my second hatch of Duck eggs and they are doing great. Due on the 20th of February ........


    Cheers!

    Things cost a lot more in Canada----about twice the price here for incubators etc.
