Best incubator?

5134 Views 41 Replies 18 Participants Last post by  Mrs.Swirtz
I want to stop buying my meat chicks and start hatching my own so I have been reading reviews on incubators. So far they all seem to have such mixed reviews. I don't want to spend a ton of money on one that won't work well. I would love to get your thoughts on the most reliable one to get. Thank you.

Believe it or not the incubator isn't the most important part of hatching. It's the instruments used to measure temps and humidity. A cheap GQF can hatch like nobody's business if temps and humidity are being read correctly. I know, I did it for years.

And what the others said, hatching meat birds is not as easy as you might think and would probably cost more in the long run.

All incubators need maintenance or repair at some point. Even Brinsea. Although having had one I can say they are an excellent machine.
