    hope you can stand the beeping every 30 minutes. Every time the turner activates it sounds a beeping alarm, drove me nuts so my sportsman is out in the garage.

    The incubator is in our master bathroom and I haven't turned off the beep and OMG that's loud! Woke me up from a dead sleep. I will be reading the directions on turning the beeping off. Lol

    Hehehe I warned you [​IMG] I know you cna disable it but to do so you have to get into the machine and I didn't want to screw anything up so I left it alone and moved out out of the house.
    The turner is actually pretty quite, as are the fans but that beeping sounds like the garbage truck backing up when it's 3am. Just get back to sleep and it sounds again. Nice thing though,
    I set on march 3rd and it's turned over 800 times already. That would be a nightmare doing by hand.....

    I bought it at our feed store. They has it in stock so no shipping. It was $749 but with all the trays, humidity bucket and tax it was $950. So much money!

    OUCH! The price at gqf was $685, trays are $40 then humidity bucket about $40, (I just made one for about 8 bucks) and shipping wouldn't be to expensive down there since
    they use Fedex ground for everything.
