    I
    see them all over ebay. I want to try hatching eggs and since I have never done it before I want to start out small and cheaply in case my hatch fails. i don't want a hatch failure due to a product that doesn't work but at the same time i don't want to invest a lot at this time either. Doe that make sence? I want something that works but doesn't cost a lot.

    From what I've heard..... no. they don't work.

    But if you look around, you will find many instructions for homemade bators that will be more reliable (if done right) then those yellow ones and still not cost a lot to make.

    dont buy it. By the time you buy this one and pay for S&H on the bator and eggs and fail you are out a lot of money. Id rather buy a 1602N from GQF.

    I've never sold anything through Artwanted except ACEO's. Most of what I have sold has been through Cafepress. Both are free sites, with some constraints of course. But at least you can see if you like it before you subscribe to a full account with premium options.

    Glad you liked my work. Where's yours at.. I'd like to see it [​IMG]

    I bought one on ebay...it cost me over $20 after shipping and for just a few dollars more you can get one from your Family Center or Tractor supply that is much better. I did try to use it and it sucks! It does not keep the temp up to where it needs to be and there is no way to check the humidity. I would'n't feel right even selling mine to someone... I'll give you mine for free if you want. Just pay $5 for shipping. Kristina 816-331-2771

    Quote:If it does work I don't think I even want it for just $5. I saw some at Blain's Farm and Fleet for $30 that are on ebay for like $60 so I'll get that one. But, thanks for the offer.[​IMG]
