Product Description

Invented by G.Q.F. Manufacturing Co. over 30 years ago, the Hova-Bator is still the WORLD'S BEST SMALL INCUBATOR and the THERMAL AIR FLOW MODEL, is the most economical incubator available. The radiant heat tube gently warms the inside of the incubator, the air and eggs. Thermal action of the heated air flowing out of the exhaust vents in the top of the incubator, draws fresh air in through the bottom vent. This thermal air flow also assists the drying of the chicks after they hatch. This design includes two small windows on top for viewing. The wafer thermostat is proven, accurate technology that produces great hatch results. This model is not suitable for use with the goose egg turner, item No. 1614

I had two different Little Giants. My first one was a still air with no turner just like this one. The hovabator and LG are almost the same exact price and wow is there a difference. The hovabator is so much sturdier, holds temperature so much better, doesn't have little gaps in the side to allow air to escape, has bigger trays for humidity, and has great viewing windows. The LG is cheaply made compared to this thing at the same exact price. The only thing I'd change is the temp adjuster, on the Hovabator you have a wing nut and allen wrench and on the LG its just a little knob. Not really a con to most people but I had to find at least one thing wrong with it to tell you guys. That doesn't even compare to how much better this thing is for your money. I also had the LG with an egg turner and air fan and I had the worst hatch ever. If you have a choice, definately get the Hovabator. If your looking at the Genesis because it holds temperature no matter what the atmosphere, don't spend the extra 100 for it because this hovabator holds the temperature very very nicely I haven't seen it flucuate at all. But if your putting the incubator in a room that constantly gets cold and hot, I would go for it. I just have mine in my room where the temp is always around 75 degrees. BTW I got the hovabator model 1602N.

I was delighted to find an affordable incubator for our chicken eggs. It has all been going quite well, but only after we got our incubator, did I notice that you are asked to keep the house temperature at an impossibly steady level. The "thermostat" is VERY basic, and the setting needs to be adjusted frequently if the temperature of your house fluctuates more that 10 degrees. I have had trouble keeping it hot enough at night, as our house tends to cool off considerably. Then, when our house heats up with the sun, the incubator soars up above 101 degrees, and (while I am luckily at home during the day)I have to re-adjust the setting at least 3 times a day. Tricky. Otherwise, great. Neat water tray for humidity regulation, super easy set-up, great viewing windows, great little thermometer, and of course, great price!

My first time hatching, put 34 eggs in and 32 hatched, yes the thermostat did stress me out a bit though, the temp in the bator fluctuates depending on your temp in your house, it was a bit irritating but worked out in the end.

1: I'm not sure why some people have trouble with temps and the thermostat. It is basic and idoit proof. It works like it should and maintains a temp of 99.5-101 degrees at all times. I do keep mine inside in a spare room where the temperature in the room averages 75 +/- 2 degrees.
2: It is styrofoam... and it is breakable.... duh.... anything can be broken...
3: Take a care of it and it will last a while.
4: Start the thermostat off 1/2 way between high and low position and work up or down from that point. Mine was up and running in about a hour with no problems.( and not a single problem to date.)
5: I manually turn my eggs and have no problem.
6: The cheapo thermometer that is included is more than sufficient for a hobbyist. Good luck with your purchase. I strongly suggest this product.

I have two bearded dragons, and thought they were both male until the mating rituals started. I had to let them mate, because neither one was eating. I contacted the breeder I got them from, and she suggested this Hova Bator since I only have one pair of breeders. It looks fragile since it is all manual and it's made out of styrofoam (!!!), but it's actually very sturdy, and from all the people I know in the business, works better than the expensive Exo Terra digital models that have a tendency to fry your eggs suddenly when the thermostat goes haywire. "If it ain't broke, don't fix it." I would recommend this incubator to anyone who has a small breeding operation--especially for reptiles. I'll buy a second one of these before I'd buy a bigger one, just because it works so well!

This product keeps an even temperature and is easy to use. It works very well with our button quail. If you are going to hatch regularly, I would recommend this item.

Beyond a doubt the Hove Bator has done a spectacular job on hatching my banty eggs, the thermometer has kept right on the degrees it was set on. The hatching was right on the money. Thank you so much. J Jacobson

I've been running this incubator with out any issues. Its warm, consistent and I'm getting fantastic growth and development with my eggs (duck and Muscovy). The instructions were not as cut and dry as I would have liked, but we figured it out. I have not had an issue with temperature or humidity at all but I gave it almost a week of run time to make sure I got the exact temp I wanted and made sure it wouldn't fluctuate too much. Its working top notch. The screws on the top get hot, so just be aware, esp. with kids trying to peek in the viewer. I love it, and for the price I can't complain a bit.

Update: I had put 7 duck eggs in and got a hatch of 6 beautiful healthy and thriving well, baby ducklings. All my 3 Muscovy eggs were infertile. This incubator did great.
