    Hovabator Genesis 1588. Only like $172 shipped with the 1610 to my place from Cutlersupply.com
    Once you go 1588, you won't go back (unless you go heavy duty cabinet style). I plugged it in, added water into the tray and was done. Now, all I have to do is check it every 2-3 days to add water and dust it. The tray is designed so that you add water to the one tray while incubating and it keeps it at 55%. If you want to hatch in it, you fill the other compartment with water as well and you get perfect humidity for hatching.
