I grew up on a rather large farm (cash crops) and my grandma always had TONS of chickens... nothing fancy, just run-of-the-mill layers. Well last summer I finally managed to save up and buy a small hobby farm of our own and we didn't waste any time converting the barn for chickens. I'll be getting a decent chunck of cash from an inheritance this spring. 99% of it will go towards paying off some things, however I'll still have some money left over. I wanted the money to go back into something for the "farm" that we could enjoy and we quickly decided on an incubator, as we've talked about hatching eggs for YEARS. Sooo... although I've been around chickens all my life I have NO experience hatching them... yet! If you could buy any "turn-key" incubator setup and price wasn't much of an issue then what would it be? I would think anything with about a 24 egg capacity would be more then sufficient.
