    I would think one of those cooler/bators would work. I have some emu eggs cooking in one, it could go cooler than it is right now to accomodate quail eggs. I turn by hand so automatic turners are out of my league. you could check out the "2010 HomeMade Chicken Incubator Contest - Win $20 Gift Certificate" sticky on this forum for more ideas.

    are a set of plans I used they wired the bulbs in series it needs to be wired in parallel instead . unless you are really good with a hacksaw, drill and file it is easier to buy a turner then try to build one.
