    I am looking to get a new incubator and I am looking for some suggestions. I want something that will hold around 50 eggs and has a good hatch rate. Any ideas...

    I like the hovabator genesis, but I don't think you can fit 50 eggs in it with a turner, only about 40.

    I have used both Hovabators and little giants.. And honestly hatch rate was horrible ( possibly due to humidity ) Right now im at day 15 with my new mini incubator i bought at dasp.com and so far 5 out of the 7 eggs placed have chicks inside :) .. just making sure to maintain the humidity!

    Hi,
    I am looking for an incubator and are you still happy with this one? Are you turning the eggs?
