    Hi Guys, I was wondering what the best type of incubators is . I am new to hatching out eggs but have not got a incubator.At the moment I am looking at the Hover Bater Genesis 1588 but is this the best option. I'm looking for a hobby Incubator Not Big?

    G’Day from down under Great Out Doors [​IMG] Welcome!

    Sorry, I have no experience with incubators, just hatches under a broody hen. You could try posting on the Incubating & Hatching Forum: https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/5/incubating-hatching-eggs

    You might want to also pop in and say hello on your local thread: https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/26/where-am-i-where-are-you ‘Find your State’s thread.

    I hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun.

    If you would like to share pictures and stories of your flock, you have come to the right place. BYC’ers never tire of these and do not back away slowly or commence eye rolling when the photo album or home videos come out [​IMG]

    Sorry, I've never used an incubator but you could check out the Reviews section and see what members think of various brands.

    Good luck to you with your hatching plans!
