    I need an incubator that's not TOO expensive and can hatch out like at least a dozen eggs......I was thinking a hovabator.....what do you think is the right incubator for me????

    Yes.

    Definately a hovabator, or if you have an extra $300, a Brinsea RCOM or King Suro.

    You definately will want a turner, though!

    I would recommend the Genesis 1588, so simple and temp is so accurate, humidity is simple to regulate. Very good hatch rates. Good luck in whatever you choose. Have fun.

    I would also recommend the Genesis 1588 with an egg turner. I got mine from cutler supply which was the best price I found and the shipping was very fast.

    What about genesis 1583? I like that one because it's a lot cheaper.
