    i would highly recommend an incubator that has a fan also, unless you're handy with electronics. if you're handy you can take an old cell phone charger and computer fan to use.
    and a turner is a must in my opinion... I can't be there often enough to turn the eggs as needed (or always remember).

    edit: the 1602 is a still air model that does NOT include a fan, unless one's been added to it. I use the 1602 for my incubator, with added fan and turner. i use the 1582 as my hatcher with fan added also. that's the picture window version.

    i purchased both incubators at the same time, added my own computer case fans, and a turner i already had... i got both incubators for about $100 from www.lllreptiles.com
