    Well, after a short hiatus fro BYC, I am back! I had a successful hatch in April but since my incubator was homemade, my husband was not comfortable with me doing any more hatches... I finally got my Christmas wish when my mother in law handed me a check and told me to order my incubator!!! I found the best deal I could online at $61.95 for the Turbofan Hova Bator Incubator(2362-N)... It will take roughly 5-8 business days but I will finally be able to hatch my babies eggs and hopefully make a few $$ to buy supplies here and there that I will need in my journey to becoming a doula.. So, I will start catching up on the forums and see you in about a week or so when I start my next hatch!! YAY!! [​IMG]

    Quote:Unfortunately, it don't but I don't mind turning them.. I was going to order one for it but the cheapest one I could find was about $45 before shipping.. It's just not worth it to me at the moment.. My biggest worry was keeping stable temps because my house temps are not stable at all... During the day in the winter it will be 85 in here but at night it can drop down to 65-70 and in the summer, daytime temps can get to 95 and night in the 80's.. Everything I read on this incubator says it was good for varying room temps because of the fan and quality of the bator so, we will see! My home made bator didn't have a thermostat on it so i was constantly checking the temps and when it got too warm, I would either turn the light off for a little while or point the fan directly towards the front of the bator... I panicked everytime I left the house and a few times when i woke up in the morning the temps were just above 104... It was very stressful.. So, if i have to trade an automatic turner for a bator that i don't have to babysit 24/7, it's worth it to me.. lol

    Thanks y'all for the well wishes.. I will definitely keep everyone updated!! I have been waiting so long to get a real bator so I am really excited about it... Now I just need to build a small box of some type in my coop to use as a brooder.. I used my bathtub but we have a few friends staying with us for the time being so I honestly do not have the room in my house this time around..
