    thats so true, if you want one for under 50 you are gonna end up getting garbage. theres an incubator for $12, but everybody says it doesnt work.
    Plus, if you have a hen hatching one its so fun to watch them follow her around and grow up with her.

    It may be hard even to build a bator for under 50 bucks with out a turner using good parts. I have plans to let a hen set this spring if 1 or 2 wants to, but for now I'll use the foam box again,,,, which runs about $150 delivered to you from ebay (or other places) with turner and digital thermostat/hygrometer,,,, (holds 42 chicken eggs)

    oh i forgot about that, homemade
    If you were willing to spend just a bit extra you could make a cooler bator. there are tons of good designs out there for homemade. :)

    Not under 50 but I think is easy to use this in a homemade bator if you have an old cooler.
