    I won a gift certificate and figured I'd buy a new incubator. My choices are a mini advance or eco 20. I have a Genesis 1588 and rarely fill it up so kind of looking forward to a smaller incubator. I like the actual size of the mini plus it has the readouts and Turner. However, for only a few dollars more I can get the octagon 20 but it's only the eco model. I'm just looking for a little help on deciding from anyone who has experience with these models. Thanks for any input

    Can't help on which to get, but use coupon code AGRP216 for 10% off.

    I have both. Get the 20. In the end you will appreciate the larger size. After a while, I purchased the turner seperately, which really helps.

    I have the eco 20, and have been pleased with it. That said,I would LOVE to give the mini advance a try. I just don't know if I could restrain myself to that small of a hatch. On the eco 20 thread,a couple people moved from the mini advance up to the eco 20, and were disappointed because the eco does require a bit more tinkering. Given that you already have the 1588, I'd be super tempted to go with the mini.
