    Hi :welcome

    Glad you joined the flock. X2 with buy the best you can afford. I would reccomend a Brinsea just from my own personal experience with mine. Really is a set and leave incubator with minimal fuss, holds temp and humidity well and very reliable.
    Have had great results with it.
    Good luck with your future incubating and enjoy BYC :frow

    I'm guessing from your username you are in SA? I couldn't find any small incubators for sale here and ended up bringing one with from Europe (a Brinsea) They do export, but you're looking at spending quite a lot if you go that route. There is a guy near East London that sells smaller incubators now, I haven't been able to learn anything about them, but he'll be worth a call to enquire. Here's his website: http://www.quailbreeders.co.za

    I haven't been able to find any info on them, but if you contact Wayne, he'll be able to tell you more. I've spoken to him via phone and email and found him very helpful.
