    Found this online, includes shipping, it say's. Has a turner & moves air, I always find these for about +180-200+, but with out the shipping, that adds $25-35.

    So, is this real? I want one, anyone else?

    Yes, I'm pretty sure it is true. It may not be the same model number you have been pricing is all.

    That looks like a Hovabator 1583 which does not have a pre set thermostat. I went with a 1588 which does have a pre set thermostat and was really easy to use.

    I got mine from Cutler supply and it was about $178. including auto turner and shipping.

    Hi I am looking for another incubator as well and saw this post. Secuono- on the site it lists the incubator and then says w/ and a number. Does that mean you get both for that price? Or is it just saying that's the shipping if you bought 2 incubators? I'm confused.

    @ Gothchick the w/ number is most likely the egg turner for Hovabator 1611 or the 1610 for quail eggs. Hope this helps!

    So, it's a good one? It has to be better than the others I hear about or can find in stores that people say nasty things about all the time.

    If you want to get a foam type incubator, the Genesis 1588 hovobator with the pre-set thermostat is much better than the "wafer" type. Mine holds very consistant temp.
