    Is there such a thing? I'd like to find a cabinet incubator.
    I need something that is extremely user friendly, but Id like to keep it around $600 or below..(preferably cheaper).
    What has your experience been with them? I currently have 4 hovabator/lg's and I'd like to consolidate it down to one.
    Whats the best price for one?

    Compared to a foam 'bator, a cabinet 'bator is extremely user friendly.
    I have a GQF cabinet incubator and a cabinet hatcher. I like them a lot. No fuss at all. Set the eggs & you're done. If you get the water attachment, you could set your eggs & go on a 3 week vacation without worring about them at all.
    You can sometimes find them used on craigslist and ebay.
    I know that there are some people on this site that make cabinet 'bators. I'm sure you could get one made for under $600.00.

    I've heard that the Dickey incubator is very user friendly, but I have not had one. You'd have to look at his site.
