    Well I did it, I just broke down and bought my second 'bator'. Hunter told me he just doesn't have the time to build a homemade one right now and I had eggs coming. Oh well at least the egg turners will continue to be used in the future Incubator.

    I'm up to 3, too. Planning on getting the 4th one next month. And to think last year I had a hard time even getting one full.

    When I went to buy my first 'bator second hand I came home with a pair of them. [​IMG]

    I want a cabinet though. Whether I build one or buy one that will be the next 'bator I get and should be the last one too.

    I have two hova bators and two refrigeratorbators......now looking to make a cabinet one......this addiction is worst than drug addiction......drug addiction is shunned by the public...BUT....our addiction is loved by the public which encourages us to dive deeper into this disease and makes us sicker.....worst part is no medicine to fix this addiction......Only thing we can do is take it one day at a time..one step at a time...one hatch at a time....GOD HELP US ALL!!![​IMG]

    I just found a Brinsea 40 on Craigslist. That will make 3.
    Do you think my hubby will notice it?

    I have been thinking about buying an incubator for next spring and trying my hand at hatching, but you guys are scaring me![​IMG] onthespot, that is a lot of chicks! I am afraid I will end up like this if I start hatching eggs!

    I have one of those and it is an absolute hatching machine. You definitely have the capacity for a high rate of chick production with those sportsman incubators.
