    On the egg turner thought..so true! Had that problem with a turner in a new bator .. had just chckens egg in there, but, a lot of them. That thing went out on me in two weeks. But, had been told that the turner that came with it was not real great. My DH took a look at it, did some explainin to me..lol..that I didn't understand, but guess that motor wasn't the best..and the turner itself was quite flimsy..hopefully you have a nice solid turner..but still watch it. :)

    Just wanted to remind those of you that may forget, like me, to watch your little thumbs up comment box. I have already left a couple of thumbs up/likes, and comments on a couple of yours today.

    MC just watch the ones near the turner motor, believe it or not that motor does send out extra heat... if you need one at it, be sure to rotate those eggs daily... its always best to rotate eggs anyways at candle times anyways no matter what bator you have
