    i'm sure someone else has asked this question before. i dont know how to search the posts to find it.
    i am considering buying an incubator. one that has a turner and is very easy to use.
    not planning on hatching more then 6-12 chicks at a time
    hoping not to spend a ton of money.
    any reccomendations would be very appreciated
    thank you

    anything will work except the LG which I am sure will be at the top of your list because of cost and availability. The LG will cost you more $$ and headaches in the future, sure some have been blessed or fibbing but the truth is you can do so much better than chinese junk LG. WTS The Hovabators are a very popular choice and are very reliable and also pretty inexpensive.

    I have been looking at the Hova bators on different sites to do price comparisons but soooo many sites sell them when googled.
    thank you

    The Hova's are good bators and allot of folks like them and do well with them. Just keep in mind Hatching is aquired art so there is a few things to bone up on, but it's certainly not difficult. good luck.

    I did ok with the LG but didn't find it user friendly for a first hatch. IMO LG is better for experienced hatchers who can watch it like a hawk and know how to tweak it very carefully.

    Just my experience.
