    I'm looking at a used (once) Hovabator on Craigslist for $45.00. I'm a bator novice and am wondering if this is a good price. It looks like they sell for @ $120.00 brand new.

    Thanks,

    I can get a new hovabator without a turner at the feed store for $49.99 It is the styrofoam type.

    not bad for a price. But the ones you priced at are probably the Genesis Hovabators which they are great.

    Is it clean?

    Quote:Exactly! You need to find out what model it is first. There are several Hova Bator models out there. I have the Genesis 1588 and LOVE it! If that's the model you are looking out, then yes! That's a great price. [​IMG]

    All I know is that it's styrafoam with a viewing window. I'll call to ask about the model.

    OK...it's a "HovaCare" incubator. Does that mean anything?
