I am using a BROWER'S Automatic Top Hatch Incubator, the circular incubator that hold about 4 eggs in each of it's 6 sections. After a lot of resear I decided on this incubator because of feedback from various professional breeders. The price was ~$160. and had more versatility than the styrofoam GQF.

Here is the link for the Brower

Gotta go to work, I'll say more later.

Thanks Sonoita, Is it temperamental with Peafowl / Quail eggs as some seem to be?

The Top Hatch incubator did a good job, as far as temperamental, all I can say is what I didn't like about it; Thumbs down
Loud - I corrected that by making a Styrofoam box that houses the incubator to muffle the sound.
Humidity - I had trouble raising the humidity to the level I wanted. This year I will add water retaining material and place it in one of the egg areas.
Egg Turning - you can not turn off the egg turning without taking the whole system off track, which is a little tricky when loaded with eggs. My solution was to have a separate hatcher/brooder.

What I like; Thumbs up
The whole thing is dishwasher safe!
Full view through the lid.
It is sturdier than Styrofoam
Any and all types of eggs can go in without needing different egg holders (eggs lay on their sides like in nests)
