    So I've decided that I'm going to ask Santa for an incubator for Christmas. Just in case he's not up on the current information, what would be a good one for him to bring me?

    I don't plan on hatching dozens and dozens at a time.

    Currently no plans on hatching a HUGE number of chicks to sell or anything.

    I've never done it before.

    Santa doesn't have much money for me after taking care of the kids' lists.

    An incubator is on my Christmas wish-list, too!

    I've been doing some research, and there's one by Brinsea called the Octagon 20 ECO. It's the one I've got my eye on!

    I've never done it before, either, and this incubator holds 24 eggs and doesn't seem overwhelming to use.

    I hope Santa sees this thread! :)

    The Octagen 20 Eco is a very good incubator, a little pricey, but worth it! There are reviews on a couple of different incubator makes and models here.
