    Hi

    I was wondering if you have or think you would be able to add a turner to a homemade incubator?

    Thanks

    Depends on the size incubator. If you can fit a "store bought" turner in it I would do it. If the incubator is too small, you would have to make a turner for it. May not be worth it at that point.
