    I'm finally getting my cabinet incubator!!! Ok so I am wanting help choosing between these three cabinet incubators... I want the easiest to use, hands free unit, with good hatch rates... Also good construction and dummy proof... Which would you get??? Why? If their is a different one you like, that holds just as many eggs that I do not have listed let me know... Thanks sooo much....

    I think for the money, the Dickie is the best buy. They are solidly made by Mr. Dickey himself of wood (not plastic or OSB). I had the opportunity to borrow one before I purchased and if I was going to buy a cabinet incubator, it would definitely be the Dickey.

    Alas, I decided that I didn't need one that held over 300 eggs and I really like having a separate hatcher. Ultimately, I ended up making my incubator from a mini-fridge and my hatcher from a wine cooler. Really happy with both of them....
