I need an incubator for home use. When purchasing chicks I usually do not like more than 25 birds at a time since that number fits well in my chicken tractor. I would like to hatch goose and duck eggs as well.
Double R Discount has a GQF Complete Turbofan Incubator with a regular auto egg turner or the goose egg turner.
Has anyone had success with these incubators or turners?
Any other recommendations?
Thank you for sharing your experiences.

Following because eventually I'm going to need to get an incubator for chicken, quail, and goose eggs that's idiot-proof, time saving, works well, and doesn't require me selling a kidney to afford it, and I don't know much about them at all at this stage! Another thing I need to learn added to the list.

My father always had this cheap styrofoam incubator and installed his own thermometer so he could make sure temperatures are right. Has worked a charm for over 20 years now and we've successfully hatched many quaill, chickens and even some parakeets. Not a clue about the brand name, but I doubt they still exist, it looked very make-do. It would automatically tilt the eggs from side to side veeeeery slowly a couple of times a day, though we always had to keep a close eye on it's temperature as it liked to cook them (we drilled holes for vents, but would slightly open it if it was getting too hot).

We have really good success with our these 2 incubators.
Magicfly Digital Mini paid $70 for the 9-12 eggs incubator.
and Brinsea Products Mini II paid $210 for the 7 egg incubator.
Have hatched duck, goose and chicken eggs.
