    I should have trusted my earlier instincts......I just lost about 42 eggs in this tophatch. I bought it new in April. Last night, the whole thing just quit and the temp was below 70 when I found it. But, the distributor is allowing me to return it, for which I'm very grateful.

    I'm looking at the Hova Genesis? I have a TX-7, but it only holds about 14-16 eggs. I am having pretty good luck with my other Styro, and just don't want to invest the money in another TX7 (even though it's almost foolproof.)

    Thoughts on the Hova?

    Thanks!!!!

    I have 3 Hovabator 1588's. For the hobby hatcher I don't think you can beat it.

    I love my Little Giant 10200 with egg turner. Very reliable.
