    Which bator would you reccomend? I've seen them as cheap as $15 (3 egg) clear up to $900. So for someone starting out, what would be your bator of choice?

    If you are wanting one for starting I would go with a Hovabator forced air. I have had a lot of 80 to 90% hatch rates with them. IMO they are just fine for average Joe. Just my opinion. Perry

    I've been researching bators for some time now. I have come to the conclusion that I am going to order the Hova-Bator Small Window Thermal Air Flow Model. The best pricing is at www.moyerschicks.com - someone earlier this month mentioned they were going to order from them too. I will be ordering mine at the end of the week. Good luck!
