    Anybody have experience with Brower's Top Hatch Incubator? From what I see it looks great. The only reasonably priced unit that I have found so far, that actually turns the eggs. (as opposed to rocking them) Clear top, good temp control, easy clean, forced air. and 60w light bulb for heat,(easy fix if it burns out)
    I'm building my own diy 200+ bator so I can't justify getting this one to try it out.

    Wow, just looked at the site. Amazingly affordable and does everything but cheer the chicks on. Im looking for a new inexpensive bator. Thanks for making me look. Im interested too. Anyone have a review?

    Doxies1, there are other threads re: tophatch. Its got lots of room to roll eggs about but I would be concerned about roll accuracy. Might just stick with another genesis.

    Quote:I think the random roll might be more like mom would do. For some eggs a roll is superior to the rock that most turners have' I like my 1588 also. I just wish hovabator would make a roller-turner.
