    Okay... while you all are waiting for your eggies to hatch... I thought I'd share my "market day's" find with you.
    I found this Vintage Chick-U-Bator.

    I thought it would be fun to have just for the novelty... the little "Egg Hatchers' Guidebook" is a really fun read! I was surprised to see the little bulb light up when I plugged it in... so it seems to "work". Then I googled Chick-U-Bator and found this link http://writersrest.blogspot.com/2011/02/chick-u-bator-blues-when-i-was-11-years.html ... so now I'm thinking maybe I should give it a try!

    I also found this Ad which I thought was very entertaining -

    Awesome, fire that puppy up and give it a whirl! I'd love to see if it really works and what kind of hatch rate will come out of it. Keep us posted. [​IMG]

    I'm pretty sure that's identical to the one I had as a child in the very early 60s. [​IMG] It came shipped with [if I remember the number correctly] three quail eggs. Of course none hatched; and my next attempt at hatching was Nov of 2011. [​IMG]
