    I want to buy the HOVA-BATOR INCUBATOR 1602N . Is the brand reliable and does anyone have any feedback on it?

    I use the 1602N. I have only had 3 hatches in it. The first one was about 70%. The second was 0%. And the last one was 20%. Overall I like it. It holds temps really well with little to no adjustment. My bad hatches were do to outside influence. 0% was infertile eggs and the 20% was that we lost power for almost 2 days and allot of them died. I would suggest that you get a small circulating fan for the unit because that will help allot. Mine also has a auto turner which I like allot. I am starting mine back up at the end of the week and will try another hatch. [​IMG] I hope this helps.

    Great incubator for the price but I would spend the extra money on the one with the fan option .
