    There may well be an incubator like that (maybe the brinseas?) but I think the price would scare you off. Best beginner incubator in my opinion is the Hovabator Genesis. You will however still have to monitor temp and humidity. The good thing about the Genesis versus the cheaper hovabators and little giants, is the temp is almost always dead on. You'll need to go to walmart though and buy an $8 Accurite thermometer/hygrometer. It will show you the temp and humidity at a glance. Humidity is as easy as addiing water to the trays in the incubator until you have the right amount.....

    I would recommend the brinsea mini eco, hold the temps rock stable and the humidity too, It is small which means great for small
    batches and looks nice lol [​IMG]
