    I really want to get an incubator this year. If I didn't want to spend a lot of money, what kind would you suggest?

    I have had good luck with the hovabator 1602N this year. The price is affordable and I didn't any problems controlling the humidty or temp. The reviews are mixed on this incubator, but my would be good. [​IMG]

    I have the Hova-Bator Genesis 1588. I've done several hatches in it and I can't say I have any complaints! It keeps a steady temperature, the turner is wonderful, it was reasonably priced (under $200), I can hatch around 40 eggs in it at a time, and humidity is very easy to control. I've been quite pleased with it and I'm happy to recommend it to other poultry hobbyists.

    I just ordered a Brinsea Eco 20 with an autoturner because it has been recommended so highly. I'll be trying it out this month!

    I have a homemade one that I have had a very good hatch with, 11/13. We made it out of an old cooler, you can see pictures of it on my blog(link below.). I do have to watch it close but that just makes me feel like I am doing something.
