    I think I know you... [​IMG]

    Try Tractor Supply. The Little Giant is what I started with, and it had a couple of good hatches for me. Lots of threads here on how to work them good.

    I ended up progressing to an Brisnea Eco 20, and will never need to buy another incubator. Really, the price was only a little more than the Little Giant and turner, so well worth it. Holds value well if you choose to sell it as well.

    I have looked around and they are 70 and up - and I don't know if this is even something that I want to mess with - so I would like to do a cheap version till I know what the heck I am doing - cause as you know - I am flying by the seat of my pants - BAHAHAHA

    IF you don't buy the turner, the Little Giant should be around $40? I dunno, haven't looked at prices for a while. And you can just turn the eggs by hand. A pain in the butt (another reason I love my Eco) but not too bad really.

    Let me go have a peek around, but that's usually the cheapest you'll find for an incubator, especially since it won't need to be shipped.

    I will look a little more - how much was yours that has the spiffy little turner .... I know - you can buy a bunch of goat milk soap from me and then I can afford my COOL incubator - LOL!

    No TSC? *clutches chest in horror*


    My Brisnea Eco 20 doesn't come with a turner, but because of the way it's shaped, I only have to turn the WHOLE incubator, and I do it three times a day, piece of cake. I think I paid $120 because it was on sale.

    It's on sale again apparently. It's soo easy to clean, unlike Styrofoam incubators. (ick.)

    so on the $99.00 one - you have to turn the eggs yourself?
