    Check out these custom incubator, https://www.backyardchickens.com/web/viewblog.php?id=41326-96-egg-cabinet-style and contact Chris. He can custome build you just about anysize bator, out of just about any kind of wood, that you might want. Standard egg capacities are 96, 144, and 288 eggs per cabinet. Priceing is in line with the sportsman or dickey line of incubators, but the quality is far superior to either of their plywood box designs. Electronic thermostats are also standard in the Biblis Incubators as are energy efficient ceramic heating elements, Not the el-cheapo nichrome wire that is standard in the Sportman or Dickey.

    If I lived on a farm and had big coops and pens, I have a Dickey or a Sportsman.
