    Yes, Hova-Bators are pretty good. I don't really know the average price range for them though, so I don't know if that listing is pricey.

    They are generally very reliable for an inexpensive incubator.

    I'm not totally sure. My experience with Hova-Bators has been pretty good, and they are pretty reliable. If you are sure about it, go ahead and buy it.

    Personally, no. Hold out for one that has a turbo fan and an automatic turner with it. This is a still air machine and you would need to buy the other things for it too. Better to get it all at once!

    That is a still air Hova and the regular price for it at my local feedstore, but you'd be paying shipping on top of the price. I myself would rather have one with a fan and an autoturner, which is what I use, other than our homemade one.

    Yeah, the ones with fans and autoturners are better. Scratch what I said before ( haha get it "scratch?"...nevermind) and don't buy it.

    I bought this same incubator from the same ebay seller. They are on back order, so if you want it right away, you better look someplace else. They told me it would be December before they were in, When in December, I don't know. [​IMG] I am so anxious to try hatching eggs again, I can hardly stand it. AND I cannot stay away from this board and all the pictures of the new babies!

    This seller is the best price around and the shipping is not bad. You have to watch the shipping with some of the ebay sellers. Just that the incubator is on backorder.

    I agree with the others that recommend a Hova with a fan. Another nice feature that I LOVE in mine is the big picture window. It makes viewing so much easier!
