    I've been borrowing an incubator (Brinsea Polyhatch) on and off for a while now and am looking into buying my own. I don't have a heap of cash to spend so have been researching the cheaper brands. Don't like the Janoel as the view holes are not big enough (I have 2 kids and lets face it...hatching is the exciting time...I wanna see it!), I liked the Incuview but can't get it here in Australia. The other one I've been looking at is the Hovobator. Anyone got any different ideas or advice please?

    I have 2 Little Giants, one for the incubation part and the other for hatching. They're definitely cheapies, but they get the job done.
    Lots of folks on BYC use Hovas, and really seem to like them.
    One of my LGs I got second hand from a friend, I traded a dozen hatching eggs for it. The other I just bought (its digital, SWEET), but I paid $39.99 for it and got an auto turner to with it as well (also $39.99).
