    any kind that isn't the homemade one i made, lol. it's giving me panic attacks because i can't feel the temps are reliable. really, im not going to be picky. any incubator (apart from my own) should be great.

    i spent alot of money buying new prebuilt bators like the sportsman and one of the styro foam bators i baught from tractor supply. I wished i would have built one and saved tons. now the styro bator is taking up closet space collecting dust. The sportsman is great but there is nothing to it except $700. so, just thank about what its worth to u.

    i would love a plain old styrofoam bator. any kind would be great, like I said. Im just afraid I am not going to get too far with twenty bucks, ya know?

    for another $20, you can go down to Tractor Supply and pick up an LG 9200 still air.... it can be tempermental, but its a great little incubator to start with.
