    No opinions other than I used 4 still air models for two years with good results. Now I have cabinet inubators and will never go back.

    Did you like them? Or were they ok since they were your only option at the time?

    I liked them fine. They are not even close to as nice as my cabinet incubators, but really for the money, not bad. I paid $35.00 each for them from Tractor Supply. I bought the auto turners online for like $40.00 each. They are fine as long as you keep an eye on them, put them in a draft free place that is in an area that maintains a fairly constant temp. I got about 75% hatch rate with them.

    I originally built my own incubator out of an old cabinet. My hatch rates were about 35% to 50%, so when I bought the foam incubators I was over the moon about my hatch rates with them. Now that I have the cabinet incubators, I am sure I would find my foam ones irritating.
