I agree and will add that TC has it for a good price. I was going to recommend you get it from an online site but they are more than TC has them.

The FI has mixed reviews, but much safer to go with the FI than the LG 9300 which is another TSC seller.

I bought 2 of the $44.00 ones there, The hatches run like 25 out of 27 white quail. I love them,the hatch rate is as good as you can get.Next year I might buy a auto turner

You know, I started out with the turner and stopped using it. (Of course, I'm a stay at home mom, so I have the ability to turn and enjoy it.) My last two hatches w/o the automatic turner were my highest rates. I can't say whether it's coincidence or other variables that I changed, but I found it interesting.
