    I just purchased the Farm Innovators model 4250. Turner forced air and come with candler. On sale for $94.99. Have seen on sale for $79.99

    Just my opinion but I think a better choice than the three you are looking at.

    I voted before I realized you were posting a certain Hovabator... goofy me.

    I have 4 Genesis 1588 by Hovabator... guess you can tell I am pretty happy with them.

    I used to have a little Giant that came from a farm store. Simple...may have worked great the first couple of years but after that the nightmares began.

    Even thought my incubators have digital thermostats and hygrometers, I still check them by putting thermometers in...

    The newer Little Giants aren't getting the greatest reviews, so I wouldn't go there, (even though I have an older model and like mine.) I've heard decent things about both the hovabator and the Farm Innovator. The Hovabator you have showing I believe has the fan kit that you have to install, and I think the Farm Innovator has the fan kit installed?

    I got the new Little Giant and have had no issues with it... yet. However, all of these incubators are a bit of trial and error, and take some "know-how" to get great hatches. I wish the best for you, and good luck choosing! You should be able to be successful with any of these.
