    I want to hatch some eggs. I looked at the incubators and turners from TSC they dont have a fan. $80 plus tax total. But I still have to buy the fan. I think they are Little Giants.
    This is my first time and I want something that will work but not alot of money.

    On BYC little giant does not seem to have a very good reputation, I have a Hova Bator 1602n with fan kit and i love it to pieces, holds temps great once it it set properly, In my opinion it is well worth the price (i think it costs around $80-90 at Amazon.com)

    We did it. We ordered one. Havo Bator with Egg Turner. A little Pricey but hope it pays off. Once it comes we are Hatching Aracaunas.

    That's great, hope you have good luck with it! Is it a 1588 or a 1602?

    Little Giants are a piece of junk! I had one for years, it was my first incubator, and I tell ya I liked to give up on ever hatching any eggs! It cooked'em all! I then bought two older model GQF Sportsman, a 1588 Genesis Hovabator, and a Brinsea Mini Advanced. The 1588 is AWESOME!! I highly advize you go with a 1588. I got the one with the clear view window so I could view my hatches well, instead of having two small windows.
