    I've been wanting one for a while now, so I'm going to casually leave hints around the house...with the model number that I want and a good place to buy it. lol

    Oh, but I was thinking that if I asked for it early, I could put them in on April 21st (I think) and have the eggs HATCH on mothers day. Hmmmmm

    I've decided on the hovabator 1588 with turner. What else do I need for it?

    Good choice on the model you want...that's my kind of Mother's Day present!!

    You'll need to get a different thermometer/hygrometer. It only comes with a little cheap thermometer.

    You will need a good thermometer/hygrometer for inside it...Wal-marts have decent Accurites and some Springfields.. I've never had trouble with mine...Some like the Flukers brand not sure where all you can get those...

    Make sure you get something good to candle the eggs with.. I use a good small flashlight...

    Read and make sure it comes with the plastic insert for the bottom. "Its Removable and easy to clean"
