    The radiant heat tube gently warms the inside of the incubator, the
    air and the eggs. Thermal action of the heated air flowing out the exhaust
    vents in the top of the incubator, draws fesh air in thru the bottom vents. this
    thermal air flow also assists the drying of the chicks after they hatch. This
    design includes two small windows on top for viewing the Eggs and the
    Hatch! The Wafer thermostat is proven, accurate technology
    that produces great hatch results.

    The New Genesis Hova-Bator Incubator 1588
    We are a Factory Authorized Dealer and eBay Power Seller!


    The New Genesis Hova-Bator is pre-set for bird eggs. Simply plug it in, then add water and eggs. Nothing to set up or adjust. This circulated air Hova-Bator comes with a thermometer, plastic bottom liner.

    Simply plug it in, add water for humidity and eggs, Nothing to set up or adjust. The pre-set microprocessor based thermostat digitally regulates itself in the 99.9 degree range. The digital technology in this thermostat, unlike outdated analog tecnology, means the command setting is never affected by changes in the humidity, temperature, dust or age. Built in sensors prevent the "burn up" of eggs. Like all incubators, the 1588 requires a stable room temperature and should not be used in areas like sheds or barns. Being pre-set, this incubator delivers consistently good hatches. Excellent for classrooms, novices, and experts. Can be used for most types of bird eggs. Dimensions 18" x 18" x 9 1/2" Automatic egg turners available. Without an automatic turner in place, the incubator will hold 50 large duck or chicken eggs or 140 quail eggs.

    Everybody seems to like this one....do I get this one?

    I ordered a GQF Hovabator 1588 with an automatic turner straight from GQF. The total cost with shipping was $180. I have had great hatches in it and no regrets. Very easy to use- just add eggs and water and wait. [​IMG]

    If you get a turner you can't go wrong. It's a bit more money (around $40) but so much less hassle.
