I was told to buy a genesis 1588-not realizing how expensive they are ( I want to buy the turner too) It comes to 200$ But I keep finding Hobavator 1602N's for a much better price-someone help with the difference and whats better-Ill bite it and buy the more expensive one if theres a huge difference?? thanks so much!!!

Why settle for Ford Pinto or KIA when you can have a Caddy for the same price?

Do you have to have a seperate hatcher for the Brinsea 20? It seems so small, it makes me wonder how the chicks would have room to hatch out in that. It reminds me of the old hot hair rollers case.

I have an LG styrofoam. I do not think I will buy another of this type

I am going to get the Brinsea 20 ECO with the turner. It should come to about the same price as the 1588 with turner and shipping.

Of course I do not incubate that many eggs anymore. I have run out of room for my flock and I have a very difficult time thinning it out.

Hope this helps

I agree, brinsea 20 with turner......$149.00, you are buying quality, instead of a refurbished beer cooler...... JMO

Please tell me where you ordered from. I have a check coming from a horse deal. Next week I am going to splurge and get a decent incubator for my serama hatches.


I am going to use my LG for a hatchery and just keep the egg cartons in it with the screen. I have done so much modifications to this thing it looks like a scientific experiment gone bad.​
