    I think most people like the Hovabator 1588 w/ turner

    Personally I prefer the Silkie hen incubation method [​IMG] Good luck with your hatch!

    Oh, someone just posted a piece they found on an experiment between the LG and hovabator!!

    The main difference is the heat setting. It is a lot easier by my understanding to adjust the temp in the hovabator. I have an LG, and it is very touchy! I love it though, it just takes a little getting used to. Either one would work, really it depends on availability and cost. Say, if your local feed store carries the LG for $45, and the only place you can get a hova is online for $45 plus shipping, I would get the cheaper one. There really isn't that much difference, imo.
