    I'm wanting to hatch out some of my own eggs but incubators can be expensive. Any input on an affordable one that work well. Right now I'm looking at a couple from tractor supply.

    Avoid the Little Giant like the plague.
    Hovabator, from what I've heard is the better option for one of the least expensive ones.
    There are some pretty cheap fully automatic ones from China on Alibaba.
    Or you can make your own. If you go to the learning center tab there are lots of homemade incubators with instructions and costs.

    Thanks! Yeah I've heard about the LGs. I'll check out the learning tab and see what I can do.

    Hello again jpepmiller [I said hello on your introduction]

    I agree with N F C in that you might want to post your question on the Incubating & Hatching Forum.

    Good luck!
