    I am going to go get a Hovabator Incubator tomorrow for $30 and its only been used once for reptiles and she said that was with the previous owner and that she's never actually used it herself..

    That is a Little Giant incubator. Does it have a fan and an egg turner? If it is a still air incubator. A new LG still air sells for $40. to $50. I have one and have had many successful hatches. My incubator does have a fan and I bought an egg turner.

    Quote:Now THAT makes more since why I found like one picture of a "square incubator" when I looked up Hovabator! Their all more rounded.
    Im not sure what it comes with.. The woman im getting it from doesnt really know much about it.. she was going to breed her reptiles but desided not to so thats why she's selling it.. so I guess I'll see what it has tomorrow when I go to get it.

    I use that same incubator and I am loving it so far. I am going to hatch a full bator once I have finished with the babies I have in there now.

    I just filled my LG with my chicken eggs that were in my sportsman to make room for more Pheasant eggs. I usually use the LG as a hatcher.
