    Okay, I have a Brinsea Octagon Eco and LOVE it. BUT - I wish it held more eggs. So, if you had approx $150 to spend - would you spend it on another Brinsea Octagon Eco 20 - this time with a cradle - or a Hovabator 1588 Genesis w/a turner? Adding the second Brinsea would only increase my hatching capacity by 20+/- eggs - but I like the way the Brinseas work. On the other hand, the Hova Genesises get pretty good reviews and would increase my hatching capacity by 40+ eggs. THoughts?

    Buy two Hova-Bator Genesis 1588's with turners. You'll be surprised how handy having a second one is.
