    ((Brought an incubator a while back, forgot this was still here XD))

    I am a hobbyist Quail owner and I am looking for a good incubator. I cannot find any good cheap ones online and am hoping for someone either to offer one or point me towards a good place to get one.

    Pretty much anything will do, even a styrofoam box incubator would be suitable, as I don't have the materials to make my own. Once I have a good Incubator, then I will be able to order hatching eggs and incubate my own from my quails to expand my flock when the aviary is built.

    Took a look and the auto-turning ones are still quite a bit pricey for me, but thank you for the link! ^^
    I have basically looked everywhere, including the main ones such as Amazon, Ebay and Gumtree.

    I'm afraid the ones with auto turn tend to be more expensive. I know it's not option for you but spending more really does get you more reliability for a good hatch and it's far less stress whilst incubating.
    I have a cheap Chinese one that I bought as my first incubator. It was about £40 from eBay but is very basic and often erratic. No auto turn, temp reads wrong and no humidity read out at all. I had to get a seperate thermometer and hygrometer and it needs a lot of babysitting. If you have the time and patience though they can be ok once you get to know the machine and their quirky ways. I only use it as a hatcher now if I have eggs on different days of incubation.

    I have a brinsea mini advance auto turn used once , you can buy a quail egg size tray..

    I paid $225 , but I'd be happy with $125 plus shipping ..... I'm in Canada I have no idea what it would cost to ship,
