    I'm looking into incubators and being 100% new to this I was wondering:

    What is the best reasonably prices unit for hatching 20-30 eggs at a time?

    Get an automatic turner or not?

    And where did you get it?

    Thanks

    Styrofoam Hovabators are the cheapest and work very well. I have one with a turner and one without. Just depends if you want to spend the extra $40 or do it by hand. You can find them on eBay.
