    depends on what you want it for....get the best you can afford....if you are wanting to just incubate a dozen or so at a time then look at small ones if you are wanting to go big time look at cabinet ones...I love my cabinet incubator my Daddy bought it for my kids 20 years ago and it still runs great...so great last year we bought another one off craigs list....for 250 dollars it holds 15 dozen eggs......decide how many eggs you wanna do then ask what kind of incubator....remember it more addicting than drugs waiting to hear those little peeps.....

    If you are new, I would suggest one of the Brinsea incubators or a hovabator, really depends on how much money you have to spend.
