    I've been wanting to get an incubator with an auto turner. I can't afford a Brinsea. I saw the magicfly 12 automatic on Amazon got 4 star reviews. Does anyone use one?

    I have never used one but, doesn't that one still have you manually turn eggs?

    *Update* for anyone considering a magicfly 12. It came in a box that said Janoel 12. I did find some reviews under that name. Happy Hatching!

    Strange. I Googled both the magicfly 12 and the janoel 12 and they look totally different. Did you get the little round yellow one or the oblong gray one?
    Also the quick reviews that I read were not great. I hope your luck is better than theirs!

    Ebay has a bunch of incubators that say they are Janoel but, they are cheap knock-offs of poor quality.

    Incubator warehouse! I am ordering from them. I am currently borrowing a hovabator with 48 egg auto turner. Very happy with it. the foam build really help getting temp stable within an hour or two and keeping temps and humidity stable. Looking forward to purchasing my own!

    It seems that I recieced the wrong incubator. They seem identical, though. They are probably made in the same factory, just labeled for different brands.
