    Hello/ I need an incubator to hatch out quail. I need to have room to hatch 6+ eggs. I do not care if I have to hand turn. The incubator i get has to be forced air. I was looking at the Hovabator genesis 1588, but the 1583 seems like a better deal for my money Can someone help me decide?

    Have the 1588 and it is a good incubator, but my next incubator I am staying away from the electronics, they go "off" over time anyway, and just that thermostat is worth almost as much as the whole 1583 incubator.
    The incubators themselves are the same...so save yourself some money and buy the 1583. You are correct, the digital thermostat is not justifiable for all the extra money, and a wafer thermostat is much easier and cheaper to repair

    Thank you! :) And would it be better to buy it directly from the GQF website?

    They do look good. Do you have any specific recommendations?
