Ok so Im thinking about getting an incubator. First question my aunt has an incubator, its a little giant but her egg turner broke, she told me I can borrow it. How hard is it to hatch out eggs with out an egg turner?
Next, what do you guys think of the little giant incubator from TSC? If I bought one I would buy the fan to go with it. I want to buy something just as a hobby but I dont want to spend a lot of money no it.

What other types of incubators are good and easy to use and fairly cheap?

Thanks in advanced!

Eggs need to be turned at least 3 or 4 times a day, do not touch the Little Giant, go with a HovaBator 1508 with the built in thermostat and buy a turner. Or a Brinsea, both are good........ I have 2 incubators, use one for incubating and the other for hatching out the eggs...

Borrow the LG from your aunt. Get a cheap computer fan and install it, hook up to a old cell phone charger. Hand turning eggs is not hard. Turn in morning and again in evening, twice a day is enough. Save your cash and use whats available. Many use LG's and have success. If you don't use a fan run the temp. at 101 F measured at top of eggs. Have fun.
