    I'm looking for the R-20 or the R-com 3 egg or some cheap, reliable, self turning type incubator. I work all day and can't turn them, baby sit etc. Thanks.

    Build a small one. It is not hard. It is really a fun project.

    As far as turning you can turn them in the morning before you leave, in the late afternoon when you come home and once more before going to bed.

    Yes, I am an enabler. Pleased to meet you. [​IMG]

    OOOh, I thought I had to turn them during the day.....I'm afraid my bulb will go out, of course if it does then I can just start over. I was re-reading your instructions....getting a list together. If I rush out in the AM and dont' turn them, then I could call DH and ask him to. I think he'd do it!

    I have the little giant still air from the Tractor supply and so far it has been great. $50 for the incubator and $40 for the optional turner. Then I got a fancy thermometer and hydrometer it was around $35. I really like it.

    I have seen lots of sites online on how to build your own incubator it looks so simple! I have never done it before though. I run a sportsman and 2 little giants forced air and turners. [​IMG]
    This one looks nice and easy!

    Just for a little idea of how to, I am sure you can find others and learn other peoples ideas and ways on how to!
    Best of luck with your hatching!
