I am thinking about getting an incubator and start the addiction of hatching eggs...don't tell my husband. Anyway, I was wondering what people's preferences were on the material their incubators were made of. I don't plan on hatching alot of eggs at a time, maybe half a dozen or so. Because of that, I have been looking at the Brinsea mini and or/advance. I know that when I was taking care of my neighbors chickens while they were gone, they had some eggs in their styrofoam incubator. I know that it was old, but man did it stink!! I didn't really look messy, so I'm thinking that maybe the styrofoam holds in smells? I'm not really into making my own, looks a bit too technical for me. I like the idea of how easy the plastic would be to clean too. Any opinions? Thanks!
