    I just got my Genesis 1588 out of the box--it is used but in great condition! Anyway, there are no directions. I know the temp is supposed to be preset, but how much water should I put in to start with?

    Thanks very much!

    The center water tray only works for me during the first 18 days..[​IMG] Then for the last three I fill another tray. This usually gives me the right humidity.

    If you go to the GQF website I think you can download the instructions.

    I've got 2 and 1/2 rows left just for you! [​IMG] I have another Genesis coming tomorrow to use as a hatcher since I've ended up staggering the two bators I have now. I sure hope it works! Boy this Genesis 1588 is a dream bator!! I'm always having to fiddle with my other one, but this 1588 couldn't be easier.
    Now the waiting begins--hee hee.

    BTW, I did find a home for a few more of my roosters this weekend. Just in time to hatch a dozen more! [​IMG]

    Boomer, Billy, (lt brahmas) Mister, (cuckoo marans) and Boots (partridge cochin) are all I have left of the big guys. Then I have 2 boys from Jody's Aracaunas, 2 bantam frizzles and 2 blue bantam cochins. Still two many but alot more manageable.
