You might be able to get away with an ordinary 37°C incubator.  When we're
up flu we don't rock the eggs after inoculation, so any humidified incubator
will do.
Of course it might be different for Sendai and you'll need a supplier willing
to provide
you with 10-11 day old eggs.

You could try posting the question on bionet.virology too.
