IncuTurn Egg Turner with HovaBator 5800 Genesis to Incubate Chicken eggs - Page 2

post #11 of 15

Thank you I'll try it.   I put regular eggs in it and marked them. They didn't seem to move.  I'll try the tape.

 

Thank you!!

I also set mine up, 38 faverolles eggs went in last night. However, since the eggs went in, the hmuidity seems to have jumped from 45% to 55% now? I pulled the red plug on top still the same.

 

Also, my turner makes a LOT of noise-clicking type noise-is that the same with everyone else? I noticed the side farthest from the turner motor are definaely turning but the ones closest to the tuner (with less eggs) doesnt seem to be turning as much?

The best way to get a lower humidity with these is to cover part of the water tray with foil.

Are you using the incuturn turner? As the Turner slides all the eggs should turn together.
Is it the motor clicking internally? Like the gears are not meshing? Or is it a slower click. If slower, the Turner could be snagging on the wire mesh.

The turner is louder than I would have expected.  The motor is just noisy.  It is odd at how small and slow it is for all of the noise it makes.

I have the Incuturn egg turner and it runs constantly and makes the most annoying noise.  I also have a regular hovabator egg turner and it only turns once every two hours or so, and the noise is very inconsequential. But that Incuturn is giving me a headache and I think it uses a lot of power. The chord is much thicker and the plug is three prong.  I have the two incubators running side by side in a corner of my kitchen that gets no traffic.  Too late to move them now, I only have a week left on this batch of eggs, but I won't do this again.  I was hoping I could keep a better eye on the temperature and humidity this way.
