    My chicken enabling hubby has fixed my Havobator. I have one that is several years old that I lent to a friend and she had put it out in her storage building. The rats had eaten up the cord on it and last nite hubby fixed it and put on a new cord!

    It is at least 10 years old and I am running it right now and it is holding at 99.5 really good. I have been using a LG to hatch with and now I have the Havobator up and running. So which one does everyone think I should use as a bator and which one as my hatcher???

    I was thinkin the Havobator as the incubator and the LG as the hatcher--Havent decided totally yet.

    I am sooo excited I am thinkin of when I get the temps in it set stealing some of my broodies eggs! HAHA Shes gonna love me!

    I vote for the Hovabator to incubate and the LG to do the hatching. That's the way I do it. The LG has just been too unstable over a 21 day period. Drives me crazy. It can handle 3 days though. The Hovabator is the Ron Popeil of incubators. Set it and forget it.. [​IMG]

    I had the same debate my last batch. I opted to use the 1588 for both incubating and hatching as I don't trust the LG anymore.
