    Does anyone have any recommendations for small, low priced cameras that I can set up in or outside my incubator to capture the full hatch? Would be awesome if it could livestream with a link.

    Go pro wouldn't be the best option since they are pretty expensive. You are mostly paying for its durability and unless you will be bashing the camera around you won't need this.

    Here are some videocameras that will do the trick-

    Inside a incubator the humidity gets high. That's why I suggested the gopro.
