    Here is my question... I want to get a cabinet incubator, but do not know which to get. I have a genesis now and thought I could get the gqf 1500 instead of the 1502, and use the genesis for hatching. I have not had a lot if success getting only about 50% hatch with the genesis. I do not want to incubate in the 1500 if the genesis problem its during the hatching part and I will still have low hatches. Suggestions please. The reason I thought maybe the 1500, was maybe getting the 1550 hatcher later.

    I don't know where you are but Craigslist here has a 1502 and a 1550 Hatcher for $1100. Check your local craigslist. I have both myself and have had great success hatching.

    Is it enough of a difference between the 1500 & 1502 to make a difference, other than the 1500 turns a little more. May just get the 1502 & 1550. Like you. There is nothing but little giants here. South mississippi.
