    I'm not actually incubating any eggs yet but I still wanted to make the announcement. I purchased the HovaBator 1588 Genesis. I got the automatic turner, quail rails and a few other addons, it totaled $210.53 but it was worth it. Anyone do turkey eggs in this thing? I'm not sure if I'll be hatching any eggs this year but I just wanted to buy it while I had the extra money laying around. A big part of me wants to do turkey eggs in January/February of 2012 and raise them to slaughter, saving a few for pets. Will I need any other kind of addons to do the turkey eggs? I know you need smaller egg holders to do quail, but wasn't sure if the chicken turners would work for turkey eggs too.

    edit: the HovaBator 1588 Genesis is actually around 130 bucks, but with automatic turners, addons and shipping it came out to be 210. So shop around, don't think that 210 was a real accurate price for everyone.\\

    Also, it says I get a one year hassle free guarantee from incubatorwarehouse.com what does that even mean??

    I have no idea for turkeys, but you will love your Genesis! I have one, it's great.
