    So I was on Craigslist and noticed an add for 2 incubators for $250 and one is a newbrunswick shaker incubator, well I have no idea why anyone would want an incubator to shake. So my question is can anyone describe the differences in all the kinds of incubators? Shaker, cabinet, styrofoam, and just plain incubators. And what is the best and why, which have better hatch rates if left without opening alot?
