    You have to purchase it separately. But you can rock the whole incubator side to side by putting a book or something under it.

    YOu dont really need a turner! You turn THE WHOLE UNIT thats why it is shaped like it is. you just turn the whole thing 3 or more times a day. It takes about 1 second to turn it. [​IMG]

    i might give my HovaBator away for this 'bator. What do you think? i dont need the constant temp adjustment and obnoxious turning w/o turner. Do you think its worth it? I can make do with small egg capacity after all, the biggest clutch i've had is 10 eggs

    I love my Brinsea Eco. I have the (optional) turner, but as already mentioned, the whole unit is shaped to be turned easily by hand. It's a very good little incubator, extremely user friendly, holds temp. well, and when opened and closed humidity recovers quickly. I'm definitely a fan.[​IMG]

    Quote:x2. I really love the ease of manually turning on this 'bator because you don't even have to open it to turn the eggs, it's really a very clever and useful design. I just purchased one and have my first set of eggs in it and am absolutely loving it. [​IMG]

    LOVE mine. Very user friendly. I have the turner, but its design makes it very simple to turn it manually. I WILL be purchasing a second one!

    I LOVE mine, too; I have 2 and use one as a hatcher. I also purchased a Mini-Advance (when they were on sale last year) and love that one, too.
