    That 845 is a very small incubator. It only holds around 24 eggs. The one I had for sale was over three times that size. That one does not look to be in very good shape either [​IMG] Seems like a bit too much money for that particular one considering the condition.

    The old Browers are highly dependable and I always had wonderful hatches in mine.

    I have a sportsman but am still keeping one of my two big browers because they as so good for a hatcher. [​IMG]

    I have a Brower that is a couple years old and it is plastic. I hadn't had much luck with it my first couple hatches, but I have since moved it from my laundry room (possible CO from the hot water heater?) and gotten a newer thermometer. I liked the design of it better than the Little Giants when I was looking to buy one.

    One question to anyone who has used them: does the "rotating" seem to be related to egg size? I just put a few smaller eggs in and they don't seem to rotate as well as "large" and "XL" sized eggs but they are too big to fit more than the 6 in the pie shaped holder. I have been manually rotating them twice a day in addition to whatever rolling around they happen to get done in between.

    We use our old round metal bator for the heat source when we have a large hatch...keeps the chicks from smothering each other....and it works great because it is so big around...

    Yeah...I would say so...this one is very old...my parents used it for incubating...then when we got into hatching large broods....they gave it to me to use for a heat source...it still works great for hatching and the temps are very accurate...but i get many more eggs in the hova with my homemade egg turners...which i cannot put into the round one....

    One of the round ones holds 100 eggs and the other holds 50 eggs.
    I dont know too much about these kind of incubators so good to know they are still useful!
