    you arent suppose to order before you get your incubator but does sound like something I would do. People love the 1588 on here. I had a spur of the moment must have a incubator now attack and the only local one with a turner available was the little giant forced air and I had a excellant hatch all 9 eggs developed 7 hatched. get forced air not still air and egg turner if available. turner is sold separe. good luck have fun.

    I started this obsession with an LG...but now am MUCH happier with my Hovabator 1588 Genesis.

    I did the same thing - ignorantly thinking someone in the family had one I could borrow... wrong... I bought a Little Giant but I would not be opposed to upgrading to a better quality bator with an automatic egg turner and more functional options that are user friendly for novice.

    Look around (you may have to pay more) and find someone to ship it ASAP. These things can take 2 - 10 days to ship and get set up for hatching.

    I would get Brower TH120 or cough up some more cash considering Brinsea bators options.
