So I started about 12 days ago with incubating and about 5 weeks ago with chicks and the thought of incubating. At the time I thought $49 was a lot to spend on a LG and that $49 for the egg turner was over kill. As the weeks have past....The cost keeps going up. So far I have invested roughly $588+ in incubator, Thermometers, flashlights, eggs and books and I am on week two!!!!
