    Im about done incubating and hatching for the summer. Im thinking I need a different incubator for hatching. Im using a Hova, which does a good job, but its a pain in the patoot to clean after each hatch. What incubator would anyone recommend that is easier to clean, just for hatching? I have a Hova Genesis that is just fine for incubating, doesnt flucuate at all, and Im very happy with that. Its just cleaning the other Hova that I hatch in is turning into a pain. I would need one that would hold about 20 eggs or so. I usually dont incubate more than that at a time.

    Thank you, but that looks like way too much effort for me. I just want to open the box and plug it in.

    I know, Im pathetic.

    Are you going to hand turn or will you want an electric turner? Why don't you build one they way you want it.

    I wont need a turner because I just want it for day 18-21. I just want one easier to clean and disinfect than the Hova.

    I thought they made liners for the hova's , not sure how cost effective they are though since i haven't tried them myself
