    Quote:For $100 you are pretty much restricted to one of the varieties of styrofoam incbators. I'd go with the Hovabator

    I have both hovabator and little giant.. I think the hova is a little bit better constructed..

    some people claim to have trouble stabilizing the temp. I think this is due to the seal where the top and bottom make contact..

    When I start setting eggs again this spring, I am going to run duct tape all the way around the seam.

    I will post my findings..

    I like some features from either of them..

    I do like the LG solid state thermostat.. I put one into one of my Hovabators..
