    I made a ghetto little incubator out of a cardboard box for my first hatch. It seems to be keeping a steady temp and humidity but i seen a 1602N Hovabator on ebay for $42.99+12.99 s/h, that seems like a good price to me. But is it?

    I would suggest you try for a fan-assisted tho, they are much easier to use.

    I would try your home made first and see how it hatches. If it does good than I wouldnt get another one. But if it does not do good there will be much better deals than that one. But thats what I would do. Goodluck.

    I have that same one, and just finished hatching chicks in it. Got 14 out of 16 to hatch. thats a good price.

    Sounds like a good price. Be sure to disinfect it before you use it.

    Do you have a feed store or tractor supply near you? If so, I think the prices are pretty similar (at least they are here), but without having to pay the shipping price.
