    Hi guys, looking to buy a small incubator to hatch 6 to 10 eggs in the spring. Any advice?

    Totally agree Hova-Bator is the best inexpensive incubator going. There are small units but honestly, once you hatch you'll continue to hatch more. You can drop $200 to have all the guesswork taken out but with a little knowledge and a hatch under your belt the wafer thermostat hovabator is all you'll need unless you need more space and moving up to cabinet size.

    Think Incubator Warehouse has the best prices:

    I have a Hova-bator and I LOVE it! It was very inexpensive and works very well. Set-up was so easy and I have hatched four chicks thus far....I have had it about a month. I plan on buying the egg turner for it soon.

    Yep....this is where I got mine. I also ordered the electric hydrometer/thermometer.

    Wow. Just realized this thread was from months ago and can't figure out how to delete my comment.
