Invented by G.Q.F. Manufacturing Co. over 35 years ago, the Hova-Bator is still the WORLD'S BEST SMALL INCUBATOR. This TURBOFAN CIRCULATED AIR FLOW HOVA-BATOR uses a fan to hold a more uniform set point even when the room temperature fluctuates and accommodates various size eggs at the same time. We have cut cost in the 2362N by replacing the picture window with two smaller ones. Visibility is still good for monitoring hatches and temperatures. Dimensions 18 x 18 x 9 1/2, 110 Volt AC. 25 Watt Heat Element. All Hova-Bator incubators include a sanitary plastic liner (item No. 1765). Without an automatic turner in place, the incubator will hold 50 duck or chicken eggs or 130 quail eggs.

"Not bad Not great"
Pros - Easy to setup, accurate, and holds humidity,
Cons - Has holes in the bottom, and when you spill water, when you are filling up the water trays the water seeps down below the tray, and leeks out the holes, and with a warm environment it will cause mold.
This incubator is not trash. But it is not great for the money. I would much rather buy a little giant for the price. On my first hatch one of the chicks bumped the wire the keeps the fan on, and the fan turned off, and temperature dropped to 85 degrees. I had the same problem with all of my hatches except the ones that I did with quail. I also had a problem with mold growing in the incubator below the water trays, and below the incubator because the incubator has holes on the bottom, and water leaked down out of the trays and went below the incubator, witch then mold began to grow underneath of it. I got the model that had the automatic egg turner, and the egg turner made the loud crackling sound.
Pros - Simple to use, long lasting.
Cons - "Bad thermometer"
I have been using this incubator for 3 years and it still works fine and looks great. I get 90% plus hatches. I use an automatic turner and hatch in a separate unit, this keeps my main unit clean. I did replace the thermometer with a digital one. This incubator works as advertised if used correctly.
"This is cheesy, chicken killing worthless..."
Pros - Cheap
Cons - Everything about it is negative but the price
This incubator will fall apart on you if handled gently. It has poorly made walls that let heat in and out from the outside and only keeps temp at al because it wastes energy. If the temp changes outside in the summer, your eggs will be FRIED real quick. Mine broke after 2 uses, duct taped for the second one. It killed more chickens than it hatched. JUNK
