    Tractor Supply, local feed stores, Ebay are all good place to look. You can get a styrofoam bator for around $40 w/o a turner, turners are around $40 too. You can usually search on ebay and find several and get an idea what they are gonna cost you.

    Im not really sure that would work. I do belive the homemade bators on the link I gave you has some you can build for around $20. You can probaly modify a few of them to the easiest way for you.
