    I bought this incubator yesterday because I think it was a really good deal and I have always wanted one. It is a Leahy Favorite Incubator. I was wondering if anyone on here has one like it or knows anything about it. I am curious as to how old it might be also. It is a huge incubator, 6 foot tall, 5 foot long and almost 3 feet wide. I has 9 trays in it and has been updated to automatic turning trays and electronic thermostat. I'm not sure how many eggs it will hold but I am quessing at least 2000. My husband I almost never got it off the truck by ourselves, this thing must weight at least 800lbs. I'm really not sure what I will do with it, maybe hatch out thousands and thousands of quail?[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
