    tomorrow I am going to go look at an incubator that holds 600 eggs. it has 6 trays. the gentlemen selling it raised and showed birds for 50 years. he can't remember what brand it is. it is older and doesn't have automatic turners. any idea what it might be ?? he also has a hatcher or brooder to go with it.

    Probably a SEARS Super Hatcher. I've got one that I have had since 1973. It is a good incubator if you don't mind turning by hand. The slides in the bottom of the trays never seemed to turn the eggs enough to satisfy me.
