    I just ordered one (my second bator) but didn't get the turner. Not sure i need it at this time.

    Who else either has this without the turner or turns eggs by hand in some other bator?

    I just bought an incubator and the turner was another 59 dollars [​IMG]. I am so turning by hand lol. Long long time ago my grandpa hatched ducks. Mom and dad did chickens too so I know all about turning..I'll find the time I need to save the money. Goodness gracious I didnt think incubators would be as expensive as this thing was.

    Quote:I called around my local feed stores and the turner for the LG was almost as much as the incubator, so $59 sounds about right.

    Everything I've seen online, including shipping is going to be $50-60 but I did see this auction on ebay today for $47.95 with shipping... from Jeffers Pet supply (www.jefferspet.com)

    or if you're not in a hurry just check Ebay every day or 2 and you'll find used ones quite often. mine works great. paid $25 with shipping.
