You can never know what's going through a tom's brain!
I had a couple of wild Rio Grade toms. Raised them from 2 or 3 days old. They were tame but I never could turn my back on them, they would sneak up from behind and try to throttle ya.
A loud noise would make them gobble...that was quite...
A couple questions I have that I may post again on a direct thread, but my GQF has the option to turn the automatic turner off. In the event I set all 3 trays with quail eggs at once couldn’t I just build a hatching tray that sits in each tray and leave them set for the last 3 days as such...
Speaking of power outtages, I cannibalize an old Little Giant, made it adaptable to work off a vehicle cigarette lighter socket.
You take a chance in breaking or cracking the eggs when moving them to a vehicle but at least you can save them if the power is out for days.
No worries, I bought my first GQF Sportsman 1200 series. After studying how it was made, I then built 2 knockoffs of them for around $350 each.
The first Sportsman I bought was
around $475, with shipping it was just over $500, back in the 80's.
If power goes out...better have an UPS hooked up...
I don't know of any manufactured duel thermostats/heating element, controllers incubators...GQF does use duel thermostats but single controllers.
If you want duel everything, you'll have to build it.
If they were mass produce, it wouldn't be feasible for the manufacturer, cost prohibitive.
