    I've gotten the best prices at Home and Brn Basics (one of BYC's Sponsers) and Cutler Supply. HBB gives BYC members a 5% discount too.

    I have the Hovebator Genesis 1588 with auto-turner as my main bator and the still air Hovabator 1602 as my hatcher. I purchased both of them through H & BB. First the Genesis and then the 1602. (I initially based it on the total price... unit+shipping...but I'd go back to them now just because of the service!)

    Good luck! [​IMG]

    the complete package is about is over $100 and was hoping to stay under. is the fan or turner more important? if i have the fan i can just do carton method right?
    can i use a lg turner in the 1588?

    Yes, I believe you can use the LG turner in the Hovabator. Id say get the Genesis and use the LG turner (or as you said, you can turn by the carton method.)
