    I need help finding a good working cheap bator.

    I would like to get three more chicks in the spring and I would like to try my hand at hatching. I have looked up some bators but they are expensive. I just need a small one.

    Anyone have any ideas?

    Is it bad to get one without an automatic egg turner? How often and how dangerous is it to manually turn them?

    Post a wanted ad on your local freecycle or C.L. I'm sure you'll get some replies. That's how I acquired my LG with egg turner. [​IMG]
