  6. With a budget of $400 your choices are endless. Especially because you can often find used incubators that are in good shape. I'd love to have an R-Com as they are the Cadillacs in my opinion. GQF Sportsman's are great cabinet incubators. Hovabators are good tabletop styrofoam incubators.

    I have a hovabator with forced air, love it. Cost about $80.
