    I am new to hatching eggs. I ordered some fertile eggs off ebay and I should be receiving them tomorrow. I bought a LG Still Air Incubator and the egg turner at the local feed store. After reading all the good things about the 1588 hova bator I am now thinking about buying it. Will the LG egg turner work in the 1588 hova bator?

    Thanks,
    Tina

    I am not sure about that but if ya order it from GQF please tell them Miss Prissy from BYC sent ya as I am trying to get them to reconize her for all the bators people have bought from them as she is a strong supporter of the 1588

    I bought a hova bator yesterday after hearing all the good things about it. I am tired of fighting the LG.. Anyway, yes, the LG egg turner fits perfectly in the hova bator. I don't know who you ordered your hova bator from, but I ordered 2 from Cutler Supply on Saturday. I called yesterday to ask when to expect them, and was told they were out until maybe Monday. I have eggs coming in, so I can't wait til then, so I called GQF, and was told that they couldn't ship for at least 4 days after I placed my order. So I found a place near my home that handles hova bators. I paid alot more than with Cutler Supply, but I had to have it sooner. So you might want to check on when you will get yours in since you have already ordered eggs.

    Thanks for the info. I am so glad my LG egg turner will work in the Hova Bator. I just bought it last week, along with the LG still air incubator. At least I'm not out that money. I ordered the 1588 Hova Bator this morning from GQF. I guess I will use the LG until the Hova Bator gets here. Again Thanks,

    Tina
