Does anyone have any suggestions for what type of egg incubator to buy for breeding silver laced wyandottes. I only want a small one. Maybe 12 to 24 eggs. Thanks

I’d very strongly recommend the RCOM incubators. They’re reliable, easy to clean and have a good viewing window. There are various versions that hold different numbers of eggs, and some allow more operator programming than others. Chicken eggs are fairly straightforward to hatch so you probably wouldn’t need the fanciest version.

Agreed Rcom - look at the King Suro (officially takes 24 chook eggs but will take 30) and get one size bigger than you think you need - so If you think you need a 12, you will be sorry if you don't get a 20. The genuine Janoels are also reasonable although take more management. Steer clear of the cheap yellow lidded ebay specials or the Janoel look a likes.
