Just picked up Old Leahy Wood Incubator I Have ?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

So I had mentioned to a buddy of mine who owns a Gun shop that I was looking for a Wood Incubator. He calls me yesterday and told me a guy came into the shop and asked him if he knew anyone that wanted to buy a Old Wood Incubator and my Buddy told him yup and called me.
So After searching all over for quite a while now it turns out there was one a couple miles from my home just sitting in a shed.

Its a Leahy Mod # 624-E

It's in great shape, Heat and fan work, it has 5 Draws and One Brooder Draw and it seems to have everything I need.

It has two heat control knobs up top any one I have seen in person only has one so I am not sure on this.

It has a rod in the back you pull up and it rolls the eggs.

The Water container is on the bottom and the heater is also.

It seems to hold at a 100 Deg  no Problem.

I do need to find a good thermometer and Humidity reader combo gauge.
Any tips on where to find parts and anything else you can tell me about it would be great.

I just hatched my First Batch of Chickens 40 Eggs and 38 Hatched, 10 Guinea Eggs and 5 Hatched , Some may still hatch since they Hatched 2 days early.

 

I may try Peafowl next.

 

I have done nothing to this incubator it works great.

I have the exact one. We have our first batch. We did not have an original humidifier temperature gauge. But complete with everything else. I wanted to ask you if you had humidity issues. Getting it up to high 50-60. Any tips. We are just at 50. Any help would be appreciated.

I used sponges on the bottom in the water tray,  that helped raise it.
