    I have hatched many large batches of eggs with my incubator (holds up to 9 dozen). But this spring I will need to do staggered hatches for the first time. I need a smaller bator for a hatcher. Any recommendations?

    (I'd rather buy than build. Just don't have the time right now.)

    The small styrofoam bators from TSC work well as hatchers, that's what alot of folks seem to use. I've been considering picking up another LG to have one as a hatcher, but my hubby doesn't seem too keen on the idea of a never ending supply of chicks :oops:
