    I've read so many post about so many different incubators and now I'm more unsure than ever. lol What brand incubators do you trust most and why? I built a small incubator spur of the moment but since this hatch doesn't seem to be going well I'd like to invest in a cheap but reliable one. Problem is there seem to be so many! I'd like one with a turner and circulated air as that seems to work best in most people's opinions but again I'm unsure of what brands are more trustworthy. So far I'm looking at the HovaBator Advance, Little Giant Advance and the Farm Innovators 4200 Pro with turner. Thoughts? Or is there any other brands out there that might meet my needs? I'd like to hear about your experiences , pros and cons of the incubators you have personally used.
    Thanks in advance!

    I also have a Brinsea, I like it a lot but if it hadn't been a gift I wouldn't have gotten it for myself. I would go with a Hovabator Genesis if I did it over again and install a digital thermometer in it :)
