    I seen one last night i believe for like 85.00 . If i remember right it was a little giant still air with egg turner. Can't give advice on best one or with / without fan. If you google incubators you prob. will find some deals.

    Can anyone help me out?

    Im in Canada and my hens finally started laying. (Button after 3 months, and Jumbo Coturnix after 5-6 weeks) I need an incubator now and was hoping for one under $100, possibly with turner, thanks for your help.

    Cirdulated is better. Still airs work but circulated air works better because it keeps the air moving which in turn keeps the temp more even through out the incubator. When we added a fan to our still air our hatch rate went up about 10% or more.

    How do you manually rotate the eggs for Hova. You just spin em or what? With just the regular Hova and nothing else.
