    I am not real up on which bator is best, seen some Hova brand ones on ebay , but I am leery about ebay, especially since I would be using a money order and alot of sellers are more gearded towards paypal. I know that the one i built was a raving failure. I am looking to spend around 40. I am interested in the kind that are like a dome and hatch 3-4 chicken at a time or a bit more quail. Or I am also interested in a well-used one of the square styrofoam kind like this...http://www.meyerhatchery.com/get_item_2362n_hova-bator-incubator-w-fan.htm

    I just ordered my hova bator off ebay it should arrive by Sat. Now heres a thought for ya...If you don't trust paypal for any reason you can contact seller about paying by money order, more often than not they will ok the money order sending you an address to mail it to.
    Hope this helps!

    I just bought the Genesis 1588, preset model. It's absolutely wonderful, just plug it in and you're ready to go. I bought it from Cutler Supply, with shipping and all it was $167 (which also included the turner) I ordered it on a Monday afternoon, and received it on Wednesday.

    Hope this helps.

    Check your local www.craiglist.com and search for incubators. Or place an add wanting one. I just bought a Hovabator 1602N with turner and a Little Giant still air for 75.00 Both in really good shape.
