Which incubator should I purchase?

Incubator Research

Research is critical in determining what kind of incubator you can need and what incubators you can afford. And just like other larger ticket items, the more money you invest, the better quality the product will be (usually). However, another thing to consider is how you are going to use the incubator. Are you using it only a few times with your family/class to watch the wonder of baby chicks hatching, or do you need to hatch birds on a regular basis? Another factor is the number of eggs you want to hatch.

Some key features you want to see in your incubator to provide optimal hatch rates are circulating fans, automatic egg turners, electronic thermostats, and digital temperature and humidity displays.
 
Here's a guide to what kind of features you can expect with our incubators listed below:
 
* - Has some of the advanced features to optimize hatch.
** - Has many or most of the features above.
*** - Perhaps the best model available on the market as it mimics hens to provide for the best possible hatch.
