    I am looking to buy a incubator and was looking for some input as to a good one. Would like it to hold about 30 to 40 eggs and be priced under $150 - 175 any info would be a big help. Thanks

    I second that! I love my Genesis. Have a couple of the regular old Hovabators and could never get the temp regulated. No problems with the Genesis. LOVE IT!!!

    I've been using a borrowed Genesis for three weeks now and it's just awesome!

    They're only like $130 without a turner and I would much rather turn the eggs by hand than constantly fuss with a wafer thermostat. This thing is dead-on accurate and steady like Eddie.

    Putting another vote in for the Genesis! I just got mine earlier in the month, and I already love it! It really is basically plug it in, add some water and eggs, and go, and it keeps the temperature incredibly steady. I've had no problems managing the humidity, and it's very user-friendly and nice. Great incubator, I love it!
