I think I have been flip flopping for a year + over which tabletop bator I should buy! Both these models; the octagon 20 eco, and the 1588 hovabator with an auto turner, have very good reviews, and are pretty much "idiot proof". My source of pause, is I am not sure which would hold humidity better-- I live in a very arrid climate and I'll be hatching some chicken eggs, but mostly duck eggs. The biggest downside to the eco as far as I can tell is it won't hold goose or turkey eggs--- or does it? biggest downside to the hovabator is it's styrofoam and probably a little harder to clean up.... I know we get a million incubator threads, but all my homework and searches hangs me up between these two and I just can't decide!!!
