    I just traded 6 roosters for an incubator!! [​IMG]
    which I already have and do not remotely need, but It was a good deal! [​IMG]
    I does not, however, come with a turner. so were going to make one (this should be interesting [​IMG]) what if we find a slow motor that turns them a little bit too many times a day? (5? 7? 15?!) will that hurt the eggs chance?
    Thanks! -Jake

    My incubator turns them every hour, so 15 shouldnt hurt. I'm pretty sure actual chickens turn them even more than that.
