    This
    is the HovaBator Genesis 1588 and I've posted about it before and gotten good reports from you all. I do want to hatch quail some day so I was going to add the quail rails for an extra ten dollars, but then it asks about an internal power converter. How important is it? Should I get it just to be safe? I'm not the wealthiest man in the world so I'd like to avoid addons that aren't necessary.

    I believe that is an international power converter. If you are using it in the U.S. it won't be necessary.

    Well estimated shipping is as follows:

    4-12 business days $15.92
    3-6 business days $18.53
    2-3 business days $38.68

    I'll probably select the $18.53, 3-6 day option.

    Quote:I always use the cheap option and usually have it the next day if they ship it. Your no that far away. they are located about 10 hours south of me and probably that or less from you.

    Hey guys,
    i've just made a website about incubators.
    The idea is that everyone can make his or her own webpage about an egg incubator, it is possible to add a description of a home made egg incubator, a review of a purchased incubator or if you are the owner of a shop you can promote the egg incubators that you sell in your shop.
