    Hello to everyone. I'm new to raising chickens and had a question. I want to hatch eggs and wondered what a good starter model is. I have a budget of $125 to spend. I'm looking for something that makes success very high and almost impossible to mess up as I have a 3 yr old I want to teach about life cycles and want it to be fun for him also. I also plan on raising quail if I can hatch chickens first. Thank you to everyone who can help with info or links.

    You will probably get a styrofoam Bator with your budget, try to get one with a fan or install one. Happy hatching! You can also build one, there are plans on this site:)
