    I just got back started with this website and bought a new incubator as well. First time using an egg turner and i just set it up to test and all and i noticed the egg turner generates a lot fo heat by itsself...I plugged it in outside just to see it works. My question is when you take it out how do you compensate the difference in temperature? Or does it affect it that much?

    Im sure this is in here somewhere and i did try searching first.

    The turner motors do get warm. I never experience a problem with a turner effecting the incubators temperature. May be more noticeable in a still air bator. I would think the thermostat would compensate for the added warmth . Eggs themselves generate a great deal of heat in the last week of incubation . You should be OK.
