    I hear they work good, You might invest in a auto Turner unless you have alot of time to turn manually.
    Good Luck !!

    http://cgi.ebay.com/incubator_W0QQi...ryZ66905QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem

    Here's just the turner, this seller is a little slow on shipping:
    http://cgi.ebay.com/New-GQF-1610-CO...ryZ66905QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem

    This is another listing for both, but I know this seller ships quickly, you'd probably have them inside of a week:
    http://cgi.ebay.com/GQF-1602n-Hova-...ryZ66905QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem

    The listing you gave is from a seller that can be a little slow on shipping.

    So it looks like $100 unless I want to turn the eggs myself.


    Well.


    Dang it.

    I have a 1590 and a 1588...both Hova bators. These have the electronic thermostat which is pre set so you usually don't have to mess with the temps any. I like mine. I also have the auto turners too.....didn't used to and hand turned them, but this is so much easier,

    So it's worth the money then, if you want to hatch eggs every year?

    I'd say so...but I'd get the 1588....fan and electronic thermostat....they cost more, but to me it was worth it.

    Will they do ducks too?

    We just built a pond. And will get some ducks. But I want to hatch some ducks also for the dinner table.
