    Well, I ordered my Genesis 1588 hova bator last night, so now I have to patiently wait til it gets here!!! I've got so much reading to do on everything so I guess that will fill my time. I'm so excited. [​IMG]

    Quote:No, I didn't get the turner. I'm going to try the hand turning thing and maybe test the egg carton method as well. Keep us posted as to how the egg carton method goes!!
    I know I'm going to just love the 1588, since I'm a newbie at all of this, the least complicated the better. [​IMG][​IMG]

    My Genesis came today!! [​IMG] [​IMG]
    I got a notice in my mailbox saying there was package down at the post office, so I went speeding down there to get 5 minutes before it closed. My hubby was trying to make me wait until tomorrow morning when I had more time [​IMG] I went anyways because I was so excited. It only took 8 days from ordering it to get here, talk about fast service.
    Know to get me a roo and get those fertilized eggs from my girls and we'll be off and incubating. What have you guys gotten me into [​IMG]

    Quote:That is one of the greatest things about this machine! Even if you do hand-turn the temp and humidity recover very quickly and stay put with great accuracy. Mine fluctuates less than a degree.

    8 days is great!!!![​IMG] I ordered mine Saturday and have more eggs being shipped next Monday. It's going to be close but I might have it just in time. I have a batch in my LG right now and I'm about ready to pull my hair out. Yesterday was day 18 so I took the turner out and then was up every hour during the night trying to get the temp regulated again. It took it forever to come back up. I guess that's better than being too hot [​IMG]
