Hova-Bator Incubators are often misspelled as Hovabator or Hova Bator. GQF Manufacturing is the manufacturer of the Hova-Bator and they have determined that the official spelling is Hova-Bator (Not Hovabator or Hova Bator). A search of the GQF Manufacturing's website returns at least 4 uses of the term HovaBator, and it is hard to determine the use of Hova Bator because the search engines treat Hova Bator & Hova-Bator as the same terms. These examples show that even the manufacturer of the Hova-Bator doesn't always get the spelling right.
The Hova-Bator egg incubator was invented by G.Q.F Manufacturing Company in the mid 1960's. The Hovabator was a new, innovative kind of incubator: low-cost, low-wattage, and thermostat controlled. In 1980, Hova-Bator introduced the automatic egg turner, another breakthrough in the incubating realm. We currently carry five different Hova-Bator models—1583, 1588, 1602N, 2365, and 2370—available both individually and in a wide variety of combo kits.
