    Hello, I'm new to this site, but have found it interesting everytime I have visited so I decided to join today. I would like to start incubating my chicken, duck, & quail eggs and was wondering about the different kinds of incubators. There seem to be several selections, does anyone suggest a certain one?

    What no turkey eggs?? [​IMG]

    I'm sorry but, I have never incubated eggs but, if you check out the incubation threads you can find good info that way. I do think different incubators for chicks, ducks, etc would be best because they hatch at different times, may have different humidity and temperature needs as well. You also may want to get info from the "Duck thread," and the " Quail thread." I think quail especially have more requirements due to their nature.
