    Are they any good. Me and Dad found one at Agri Supply up in Raleigh and it is affordable. It's 45 for the Incubator. It holds 30 eggs. It is a still air incubator and they sell a egg turner seperately for 45. They do sell a fan, but it's 50 dollars more.

    It is not as good without a fan. All the hot air stays at the top of the incubator without a fan. You get a better hatch with a fan it is worth the money.

    You can get the still air incubator and add a PC fan from an old computer or you can go to best buy and buy one.
