    Currently I use Hova bators and only have a 50% hatch rate, I would like to start hatching more eggs, like a couple hundred a month and would like advice on incubators. Also what are reliable brands of thermometers and hygrometers, I can never seem to get the cheap ones I have completely accurate.

    Brinsea also do some good reliable cabinet incubators for hatching larger amounts of eggs.

    They are a reliable and trusted brand. Although a little pricey.
