  1. My bator was delivered today (the Hova Genesis)!! [​IMG] I have it set up right now and am putting it through its paces, which is pretty easy because I don't have to do anything, lol.

    I have a question about the wire mesh. It doesn't lay flat, exactly, but sort of curls a bit. Not much, just a bit. Will that be a problem with the eggs, will they roll around? How can I get it flat? Anyone else have this issue?

    Getting psyched!! [​IMG]

    The wire mesh in mine wasn't really flat either. I just laid it in and put the auto turner on top of it, no biggie! [​IMG]

    i dont think any wire is flat it wont hurt the eggs ... you will be fine just try to get it in there flat as can lil wave is fine .. just not a lot
  5. Thanks! It seems fine, I don't think the eggs will roll. Holding steady at 100F and 47%. [​IMG]

    I received my Genesis last week Tuesday and have had eggs in it since Thursday. It's working great!! I wish I would have bought one in the first place instead of the bators w/ the wafers. Good luck on your hatch.
  8. Good luck to you, as well! I can't believe how steady this holds. It's fantastic!
