    I have an LG (ugh). Will the turner from my LG fit in the hovabator?

    It has been a debate between the genesis & a brinsea Octo 20. Any input?

    Thank you as always!!!

    I plugged the Genesis in. It came up to temp within just a few minutes and has STAYED there. It recovers temp very quickly without going over.
    I love it. The electronic display got condensation in it when I put them in lock down. I called. They tested a new one and sent me out a whole new unit when I told them I had eggs in it. I have to call them for a pick up, at no cost to me. Incredible customer service.

    Not sure about the Octo 20 but the new Genesis Models have a Digital LCD Display to adjust temperature. Makes it much easier. The earlier post was right. They stay dead on temp.

    We just got our new ones in. I would make sure if I got one to get the New LCD Display.[​IMG]

    My Genesis turner measures 15 x 15. Separate power supply.

    Little Giant Egg Turners do not generally fit the Hova Bator Incubator. I can look at one I have back here to make sure but I am pretty sure they require the Hova Bator Egg Turner.
