    So
    , how does this deal look?I need an incubator with a turner, my incubator is manual and its on loan from a friend, I have to get it back to her... its $100, I have about $120 saved from my birthday. And my little bro will help to pay for it, as I would be hatching eggs for him as well.

    I would say, stay away frmo it - you can go to TSC and buy the same set up for $80 - mine sells the bator and turner for $40 each
    Go with the Hovabtor Genesis with turner - it maybe a few dollars more,but maybe you can ask your paraents????

    I just bought one also from incubators.org, I paid alittle more then DUCKGIRL89 did. I got the Hovabator 1583R with turbo fan and egg turner for 136$. The one listed on the craiglist isn't the truth they probably didn't pay 160 for it because still air is cheaper then that. If you want one for the same price look check out incubators.org. i checked out a lot of web sites and they were the cheapest by far. good luck in your search
