    It really does depend how much you want to spend and what you want the incubator to do. I would recommend an incubator with a turner it takes a lot of work out of incubating. If your on a budget I would recommend the Brinsea mini Eco but there are others out there that can hold more eggs for the same if not less money. Here is the review section on incubators hope you find it helpfull

    Thanks for the suggestions I've got a little while yet to figure it out. But I'm really excited to try for chicks this spring :)
