    I have a brinsea 20 Ex with pump
    and a hovabator 1602N (its old and not in the best cosmetic shape)

    I was thinking to cut the hovabator top , to make the brinsea top fit on .


    My idea is to see of the Brinsea control top will have enough power to heat and mantain the temperature an humidity

    if it does I can put more eggs since the turner holds 120 quail eggs


    What do you think guys?

    I dont like to screw up the hovabator for nothing.


    any opinion is welcome

    Quote:I do not think it is a good idea. Yes, you may screw your Hova for nothing. You can put 120 quail eggs in Brinsea 20 just double stack them.
    Then use Hova as a hatcher, now that is an idea (works for me every time, the only difference I use Brower TH as hatcher).
