    That looks exactly like my Genesis 1588. I'm getting ready to use it for the 1st time in a couple of weeks, but I know there are many users who swear by this bator.

    The link provided at the top of the thread is a Genesis 1588.

    Hova-Bators are good.

    I have a 1582 Picture window. I could probably hatch rocks with mine...

    Happy,

    That looks like a good deal on that Hovabator! I think I may have just changed my mind! And it's CHEAPER, too! LOL

    Thanks for the link!

    Haha yup, I just bought mine 12 hours ago! [​IMG]

    your welcome!

    I loved how it comes with the egg turner, quail and chicken racks, Ive never raise quail before, I may have to research this summer about them and possibly get a few.... idk.

    I think it's the best bang for the buck. To get something better you have to start spending more than twice as much. I've had many good hatches in the genesis, and the one with the smaller windows.

    Just invest in a great thermometer and hygrometer so you can make adjustments as necessary.

    Look on my BYC page. I have a short setup video.

    Also, your not gonna find many people that don't like Hova-Bators. Just spare yourself the despair of buying a Little Giant Incubator. Pieces O' Junk!!

    I also have an LG here at the house in addition to my Hova-Bator, the LG never has worked right for me. My FIL has used it, but I had bad luck with it....
