Marsh TX-4 incubator. Looking for instructions

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I just picked up an old Marsh TX-4 incubator for 10.00. It seems to work other than needing a water bottle. Does anyone happen to have one of these old units that can share directions with me? I know it is old, but I figured it doesn't hurt to ask.

Living on 5 acres with DH, 20 goats, 2 Border Collies, 2 LGDs, 5 cats, 1 parakeet, numerous gold fish, and of course CHICKENS...13 and counting.  I wish I had done this years ago.  Oops, I mean 50 and counting, how did that happen?

I can't even find actual instructions for that one. I did find instructions on how to put it together. I was hoping there is a little more thatn that. I was trying to find out how the wick on the water bottle was supposed to work.

I have the 5 page instruction sheet for the TX6 saved in a pdf file in my computer. Not sure if the TX4 is much different, but pm me with your email address and I'll be happy to send you a copy.

You smell that? Do you smell that? Broody poop, son. Nothing else in the world smells like that.

I love the smell of broody poop in the morning.

It smells like... progeny
