I had the basic styrofoam hovabator this summer and it worked fine. I wasnt impressed but I also wasn't disappointed. Now that I have hatched a few batches, I want to ask my husband to get me a nice incubator for Christmas. I have tried researching on my own but it's impossible to know with so many choices. So, I am coming to you my trusted, fellow byc-ers! I want something less than $300. Doesn't need to hold many eggs. Needs to do well for hatching the 3 sebastapool eggs a friend is sending in the spring. Has to have a built in thermometer and hydrometer. Start telling me what to get! Thanks.
