I've still got 4 toms and 6 hens, but that will fairly soon become 3 toms as I'll process one tom for a late Christmas/early New Years dinner with friends. Very likely will process one more tom by early spring. So I should go into spring with one tom and 3 hens each from my Bourbon Red and Blue Slate turkeys (so 2 toms and 6 hens total). No eggs yet, but given we just passed the Winter Solstice I'm not really expecting to find any until at least mid-February, possibly not until early April. So I've got a little time, most likely, to figure out an incubator. But, with the stimulus $$ coming, thinking it's a good idea to start the process.
What are some good incubators to look for good deals on? And before someone suggests it, my chickens aren't going to be reliable enough to hatch them out, and I won't be getting broody birds like Muscovy ducks anytime soon. So I need a mechanical incubator. I figure on an absolute max of 5 eggs a week per hen, and with a 28 day incubation period there's little reason for an incubator over 120 egg capacity. And even that is likely overkill. If I only get 3 eggs per hen per week then 72 egg capacity would be plenty. If for some reason I had a week with more eggs produced by the turkeys than I had incubator space for I could either eat the eggs or sell them to someone else interested in hatching them out. I'd plan on selling the hatched poults in excess of what I want to raise up personally.
