    Hi,
    We have 2 1588's and 2 turners, plus a LG still air.
    Can the 1588 turners fit into the LG? Can we use them in there?
    Thought we might try to use the turner in the LG for an incubator since I can't seem to get humidity to stay at 70% and use the other 1588 as a hatcher w/out its turner.
    Thanks for any suggestions,
    Take care all,
    Angela

    Did you try them?

    If they fit in the case, and they turn, I don't see why not.

    Did you fill all the water troughs on the 1588 to get 70% humidity? I did that and still had to add a wet sponge in the bator but it all worked out fine. A wet sponge in a shallow dish or even a white tube sock works great for bumping the humidity.

    I have a LG turner in my 1588 and it fits and works just fine so I'd imagine you could use the hovabator turner in the LG too

    My 1588 turner wouldn't fit in my LG I tried it before. The motor is in the way and it's just a tiny bit to wide. I didn't want to buy a turner for the lg and really wanted to use the 1588 as a hatcher.

    Hi,
    We just filled most of the trays in the bottom, not the small shallow ones and its holding high humidity.

    That's what we wanted to do as well, use the 1588 turner in the LG and use the 1588 as a hatcher, it holds humidity.temp so much better.
    Maybe just have to sell LG and get a 2362 or something like that for hatching?
    Thank you all,
    Angela
