Genesis Hova Bator Incubator 1588

Fully Digital Hova-Bator!


The Genesis Model Hova-Bator is the latest and greatest from incubation experts GQF MFG. Featuring fully digital temperature settings, this model allows you to set your temperature to any required for your bird or reptile incubation, down to as low as 60ºF (room temperature has to be 50ºF for the 1588 to regulate 60ºF).  Even though you have this great range for setting your temp, it comes pre-set for bird eggs (99.9ºF), so most eggs will be able to go right into the incubator with no adjustments required! Just plug it in, add water for humidity, your egg turner (sold separately for all size eggs), and eggs! The LCD will display set temp, actual temp and humidity percentage in both Fahrenheit and Celsius, while the pre-set microprocessor based thermostat digitally regulates itself.


This incubator is TUV Listed & safety tested, making it perfect for use in a classroom or laboratory setting. It also uses a 12 Volt system which operates on a 100-240 Volt AC, with only U.S. plug and cordset supplied. The digital technology in this thermostat means the command setting is never affected by changes in humidity, temperature or dust. Built in sensors prevent the “burn up” of eggs. In the event of a failure, the system simply shuts the heater off. Like all incubators, the Genesis requires a stable room temperature and should not be used in areas like sheds or barns.


This easy to use, certified safe incubator is a great choice for breeders; both novice and expert, bird or reptile, even classrooms and labs!

Hands down, the easiest and most capable hobby level incubator anywhere...Review by Frederick Dunn

I'm a licensed poultry technician with many years of incubation & hatching experience, with units large and small. I am often asked for advice on which table top unit is best. I'm happy to endorse this particular design.

There is also a video demonstration of this unit available on YouTube if you care to search it out. Step by step, including all optional components. I do not have any part in selling this unit, only endorse it as the best hobby level table top unit available today, for the money.

You will see many table top incubators, all appearing very similar in style and composition. So what makes one better than another?

The Genesis Hova-Bator Model # 1588 is my number one choice when recommending a unit to teachers, pre-school directors or other small scale hatching projects.

Things which make this unit a "stand-out"

First, the basic design...
The top inverts and nests neatly into the bottom for storage, requiring less space when not in use. When the top is in the operating position, this incubator has plenty of space for larger eggs, without the extension ring offered by some other manufacturers/models. It's not sharply squared.. this appears cosmetic, but actually, allows air to circulate more efficiently than sharp cornered units do.

Efficiency, this unit has the heating coil neatly wrapped on the fan unit, rather than spread out over the interior top surface like others. This is a plus when it comes to cleaning between hatches.

There is a large viewing area. This is a great advantage when you are explaining the hatching process to lots of little people who "want to see"... other units often have two smaller viewing windows. The top window is very clear, without distortion.

Another strong feature is, the digital thermostat does not have an external adjustment for little fingers to fiddle with. It comes pre-set from the factory and is ready for chicken egg incubation, right out of the box. You unpack the unit, put the elements together, plug it in and you're off and running. 24 hours later (after temps stabilize) you put in the fertile hatching eggs and incubation begins... it's THAT simple.

I tested the interior temperature (factory set) with a certified/calibrated digital thermometer and found the unit I received to operate at 99.8 deg. F. this is a very good temperature for forced air incubators. This temperature was held to a "T". No further adjustment was necessary.

IF you are hatching something other than chicken eggs, you can indeed adjust the digital thermostat from inside the unit top. There are very detailed instructions on how to do this, with the unit.

One of the strongest features this incubator offers, and why I am so enthusiastic about it, it the fact that it runs on 12V DC current. The plug goes through an adapter for your 110v wall socket. Why is this important? Well, because if there is a power loss, due to a spring storm, you no longer have to worry about losing all your developing embryos. GQF offers a 12V DC adapter with the unit, which can be clipped onto a battery... car batteries, for example, are 12V DC. This allows the unit to keep running, warming and circulating air, in the event of an outage. When power comes back on, simply plug it back into the regular plug in adapter. This is a BIG advantage over other units.

Accessories I recommend with this unit are:

1- The automatic egg turner... you don't have to worry about weekends, or forgetting to turn your eggs. It runs on a 4 hour cycle.

2- Definitely get the optional 12V battery adapter, because you just never know when your power may go out.

If you are a teacher, about to begin an incubation unit in your class... this is the one I would use for the class room. You don't have to worry about little Johnny touch-touch, altering the temperature when you are not looking.

For the hobbyist or home school educator, this is a sort of sure shot incubator. 42 chicken egg capacity.... if you are into quail, then quail cups come with the automatic turner kit.. with a capacity of 120 quail per hatch.

The owner's manual is detailed and well presented, complete with photos and illustrations. Get the entire kit, you won't be sorry.

There is also an optional goose egg set for the automatic turner, holds fewer than the chicken egg set up, but the unit is more than large enough to accommodate goose or swan eggs.

One of the Sponsored links for this listing is for www.Strombergschickens.com this is where I obtained my unit as reviewed, with all the mentioned accessories. A flawless transaction.

The Genesis is a great, inexpensive table top incubator. It is pretty much a turn on and forget about it item if you include a turner. I have two, and my hatch rates are about 94%. The eggs are visable thru the large pic window, and the temps stay very constant. The only variable I have is the humidity. It does range a bit, and is often too dry. I think this is because of the small size and the fan. I highly recommend this product for those wishing to hatch a few or even several eggs for it's ease of use and succes. (Posted on 3/9/2013)
Much Needed!Review by Billie Walker

I needed 2 incubators, 1 to hold the turner, 1 to put the 20 day old eggs into for hatching. They cannot hatch in the turner, yet I did have more eggs in the turner, so, they hatched in the controlled environment of this incubator and THRIVED!! I managed to hatch all my chicks and didn't loose any with the incubator's warmth!! (Posted on 3/9/2013)

I just recieved the incubator this weekend. It's extremely simply, and heats to specified temp within minutes. It's very accurate. It's perfect for goose eggs as well as other larger breeds of eggs. (Posted on 3/9/2013)

Great egg incubator but not worth the price you pay for it ! It could be made with better MATERIALS then some CHEAP styrofoam. It does function the way the handbook said it would and holds a nice constant tenperture for the eggs. I gave this a 4 out of 5 stars due to the price of the item ! (Posted on 3/9/2013)
