    Ive been using homemade incubators that have been giving me about a 75% to 85% hatch rate. So I am planning on getting a new one. My choices are either the GQF Model 1588 Genesis Hovabator which holds 48 eggs with the auto turner and will cost about $185.......or the R-Com King Suro 20 which looks a lot more reliable (I really wouldnt know since Ive never had any new incubators before) but only holds 24 eggs and costs $300. Which one would be the best? Im looking for ease of use, high hatch rates and dependability.

    Absolutely the 1588. I have one and would buy another in a heartbeat. Have you checked Cutlersupply.com for pricing? They're the cheapest that I've found.

    I got my 1588 a couple weeks ago for $121 including turner


    It was used of course, but wonderful none the less!
