    Will the Hova-Bator egg turner (model 1611) fit in the LG incubator? They look the same in pictures, but want to be sure before ordering. Thanks.

    Thanks Warden. I found the information I was looking for at this site: http://www.poultryconnection.com/quackers/incubator/batortest.html

    The egg-turner for the Hova-bator is not quite as tall as the Little Giant's and will fit into either incubator. However, the Hova-bator egg turner is a snug fit in the Little Giant; you have to be careful not to damage the Styrofoam base.

    It contains the details of a test comparing both the Hova-Bator and the Little Giant incubators, and their optional equipment such as fans and turners. I found it to be quite informative.​

    Good luck. It sure beats hand turning and opening the thing constantly!
