Does anyone know where I can get the old style body of a Genesis 1588?

    I hatched eggs during a power outage and put my incubator a little too close to the woodstove. It melted a bit and now has a gap. I looked for a replacement top and bottom but the only ones they sell are the newer style with two windows. This one has the single window. The fan and thermostat work great....I can's seem to find a styrofoam body to replace it with.

    i went to the local pet store and the fish department had plenty of styro boxes to give away. I took out the parts from my hova bator (after melting it next to the wood stove in a power outage LOL) and put everything in the styro works great!!! I have hatched quail, chickens and I have duck eggs in it now!

    Thats a good idea! I want to make it the same size as the old one so I can use the egg turner.
