    ok im been wanting to try my hand at incubating some quail is i finally ordered a hova bator 1602n thermal air flow with out a fan or automatic turners.. i know i will purchase a fan Soon and turners ..but is it possible to get a good hatch just as is with the thermal air flow and good old fashion hand turning 3 times a day?

    It is possible to get a decent hatch without the fan & turner but they do help make things easier.

    Beware incubating is addictive! I started several years ago with a hova bator (no fan or turner) to hatch a few duck eggs. I now have ducks, chickens, pheasants, peafowl, guineas & quail and three sportsman incubators and a hatcher.
