    My new 1610 turner sort of vibrates the eggs as it ticks. Is that normal? I thought vibration was bad. My eggs are definately feeling the ticking. Normal?

    Crap! I just got mine too. I'm planning to start my hatch the week of 2/13 and wasn't planning on test firing the incubator this early. I'm going to check it out now. I hope I know what to look for. . .

    I just talked to them also. They said it is nothing to worry about, but they are going to send me a new motor anyway.

    Which company? I dealt with Incubator Warehouse. Great service, I must say. They didn't say how long it would take.

    MothrHen - could you let us know if yours does that ticking when you start it? If yours does it, too I will be a lot less nervous that it is a problem.
