    Please excuse the novice question, but I was wondering if anyone had any tips for finding a small incubator (used is fine) and also brands/makes that you have had success with. Thanks in advance! I was thinking about trying to hatch just a few eggs to get started and don't want to invest too much.

    Craigslist is a great place to start looking for a used entry level model.
    Make sure you plug it in before you buy it. Its not a guarantee that the model is working, but at least you know it will turn on!

    Go for a hova-bator or Brinsea, those are the best I have seen. Don't waste your time with an LG!
