Glad you posted this! Since I work 12 hr night shifts and am not here for up to 15+ hrs at a time, I REALLY need an incubator that I can rest assured that the humidity and temp will stay pretty well where they are supposed to. I do have a hubby and daughter that can check on them, but don't want to HAVE to rely on them to correct temps, etc.
I don't mind spending a few hundred $$$ for the peace of mind to know they will be okay. I know the bigger incubators cost way more than that, and I am sure I'll want one at some point, but need to not spend a fortune just right now if possible.
Almost any incubator other than the infamously terriable LG ( little Giant ) chick killer would be a safe bet. Please don't buy an LG even though some dillusional people have managed to hatch a chick or 2 from them, don't even think about getting one, they are Made in China and are nothing but Junk.
WTS the Hovabator's & Genisis brands work good as well as the Brinsea are all very good choices. get one with a fan/forced air and don't forget an egg turner. That should have you fixed right up, good luck.
Quote:Thanks for that info. I would be really peeved if I got an LG and didn't know better and then hated it! Is one brand better than the others for any specific reason?? I'm going to be looking for a used Genesis, but looking into the Hovabators and Brinsea as well. I'd like to hatch 25-50 eggs at a time. Probably more later......
Quote:Could not AGREE more, I have the Little Giant and I would maybe give it 1 star out of 5. It's terrible!!!!! It might look like a good price, but when you add a turner and a fan, then you're better off just paying for the 1588 Genesis Hova-Bator
