    I have one that i will give you !

    You need the egg turner which i think is another 50 bucks. I dont have the fan, so maybe thats why mine doesnt work very well.

    The fan is going to improve your hatch rate and if you can get a used bator that doesn't have a fan you can buy and install one. The turner is important too. Unless you are a stay at home person and have plenty of time since turning needs to be done 2 to 4 times a day at the same time every day. Turners are a GREAT time saver.

    if you are really wanting to start hatching spend your money on a better one. buy time you buy it and the egg turner you could have gotten a nicer one. check EBAY they have some better ones. get one with fan and turner

    If you are a pretty handy person you can make one out of common items easily purchased for about $30. There are several posts on YouTube that are pretty good to show you how to build one. I have built several and they have worked great. The most important thing to remember is tempature and humidity! Get those right and you will be successful.
