    Does anyone know anything about a Dickies/Dickeys/Dickys brand incubator?

    I was told it was similar to the GQF Sportsman but I can't find anything online to figure out what exactly this incubator looks like, how much it weighs, egg capacity, how it operates, etc.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    I did have that info but can't remember what I did with it. They are made in Ga. Cost about 600 dollars. They are a cabinet type. My Friend Bobbi Porto uses this type. You could email and ask for info. Indigoegg is her website. You can google it online.. I will look in some of my catalogs and see if I can find it.

    The link is no good.

    I have an interest in this because someone offered me one.

    Do you know much of anything about them?

    I was asking Bobbi what she used and this is what she told me. I am sorry the link is not working. I found the old email with the addy and I had used it to look it up last year.

    My incubator is a Dickey. It's the greatest thing, but not cheap. They are well known for being dependable... as well as Mr Dickey. I called him at noon on a Sunday once and he stayed on the phone with me and walked me through fixing it with a full load of eggs.... The hatch was saved!! I've had excellent hatches since I got one. Here's the link....
    That puppy is a he.. Beauregard is his name... and that's what he's for... to spoil!!

    This was a quote from my email from Bobbi. Hope it helps

    Thanks! I am thinking about taking a ride to go inspect this thing. I have never heard of one of these before.

    Miss Prissy,

    There were a bunch of silkie breeders discussing how excellent the Dickies are. It made me want one badly! If you can buy one for a great price, I'd go for it. I'm jealous!
