    I haven't had any luck with hatching eggs at all, I'm pretty bummed about it. Anyways, it may be my bator or it may be my thermometers but I think I'm just going to get a whole new set up (new bator and digital thermometers). What would be the best kind of incubator to use? I have a little-giant bator but I want something else. I saw some cool ones on ebay but I don't want to get something that doesn't work. Thanks!! [​IMG]

    Peeps, I like my circulated air Hova Bator Model 1583 from GQFMFG.com.....I just had a great hatch with it 28 out of 32 eggs....Temps and humidity were perfect...runs around 89.00 just for it, I also got the turner.. Alot of people are going with the 1588 model, mines runs as good for a lower price....

    I have a turner but I don't know if it will work for the new bator. My turner just sways, is that what they are supposed to do?
