    I am wanting to starting hatching my own eggs, just for myself. Any suggestion on incubators?

    I got the Brinsea eco 20, and love it. look up Brinsea incubators. You can just scroll too the bottom of your page too see them.

    I second Brinsea. I purchased my Octagon 20 almost 11 years ago and have hatched many many chicks with it. Mine is nothing fancy, no digital displays with buttons, but it's always solid as a rock on temps. Easy to clean, easy to store between hatches.
    That being said I just purchased a GQF Sportsman and will be trying my hand with larger hatches. Haven't received the new incubator yet, but they seem to be the gold standard of cabinet incubators.

    We have a Brinsea Mini, holds 7 eggs. We love it. We have hatched 2 in the first round that we put in. Very easy to use.

    I'd look into Brinsea incubators. I love mine. They have a quite of selection and you can pick one that best suit your needs or budget. Rcom makes excellent incubators as well but they are a bit pricey.

    I went with the Brinsea mini advanced, and we just set our first eggs. Wish us luck.

    I have a fan circulated Farm Innovators pro series model 4200 and it seems to work really well.
