Are you buying fertile eggs or are your hens with a cockerel ?

Hi how longs a peice of string you can buy cheap incubaters, the best ones are fully automatic so no need to open it to turn the eggs, semi automatic  you have to turn them manualy with a lever or you have the basic incubator where you have to turn the eggs yourself  :wacko: i have used a semi auto and had good hatch rate couldnt afford the fully auto, you can get second hand ones from e-bay or amazon hope this helps  :D
