Ok.....I was candling and I knocked over my BRAND NEW incubator 1588
....they are not very durable lol

Not good......I have a still air set up for hatching (running 101 F at the moment) so I put my 5 live eggs in there. Poor eggs....

I called around locally and best I can find is a still air with turner ($99.00)...or a circulated one with turner ($150.00). I need to leave in the next hour or so to go get one of them...(there at different stores) which one should I get? I am so indecisive. Whats the hatch rate difference? Any other advice

I broke the Styrofoam and the turners little plastic part that connects to the motor. Motor seems ok and maybe I can Jerry rig it to work again. The rest of it seems OK. Man...I am a klutz....can you believe I am a graceful waitress for a living...LOL

I'd keep the eggs in the hatcher and contact the manufacturer to see if you can get a replacement piece. I believe they sell individual tops and bottoms for the 1588. Would save you a lot of $. You can always hand turn. It's not too bad.

If the styro isn't too badly broken there is a glue for it at the craft stores. I cracked the corner of mine and used the styro glue with two toothpicks embedded inside to hold till the glue dried.

Jessika,
I keep some parts for the turners. Tell me exactly what part is broke and I will see if I can get you a replacement (or take apicture and email it to me). Give me a hollar at 334-991-4069 or admin@homeandbarnbasics.com. If I have what you need we can do priority mail first thing Monday.

Hope I can help
Tony

Jessika I have a turner that the motor went out in, I live a ways away but if Tony doesn't have what you need maybe you could put your motor on this turner?
