    Though I have an LG (not with a fan), I have heard the Hovabators are the better buy.

    LOL!

    Good luck to you Seminolewind!

    I ordered mine straight from the manufacturer at the recommendation of MissPrissy. She had an amazing story about great customer service from them. With shipping and an automatic turner, mine came to $172.

    The hov 1588 sounds good with the preset temp. Is 99 degrees warm enough? I thought the temp is supposed to be a bit higher.

    99 should be just fine. I think 99.5 is ideal but I know people who hatch very successfully at 98 degrees with less deformities so 99 should work great. What I've heard about the 1588 is that you just add eggs and water and you are set. That's why it was so appealing to me.
