    Yep. It's the incubator we're all raving about here on this thread!
    It's obviously not for mass market hatching, but for the backyard chicken crowd, I think it's the best incubator for the buck. Hands down! [​IMG]

    Customer service thinks the wiring for the fan and the heater got crossed on my unit. They will be sending me a new thermostat unit to swap out.

    How does this unit rotate the eggs? I don't see a turner on the inside and it looks like it sits flat on the table

    There is a removable turner that slides the eggs back and forth in a fashion very similar to how a broody would do it. Some people choose to take it out and just hand turn their eggs. For normal sized eggs I've found the turner works very well.

    The very first post on this thread has an excellent set of photos showing the tray and the turning mechanism.

    It's the same type of plastic as the styro bators, not sticky. Mine seems to work okay though it's important to note it doesn't turn a full 180 degrees each time, it's more like a quarter turn each hour.

    If you mark the eggs, it's easy to tell that they're rolling.
    That said, I've only incubated normal sized eggs. For duck, goose, or quail eggs, hand turning might be best. That is, until Incuview makes a XS and XL sized insert for us! :D
