    Looks like a homemade bator, but probably works just fine.

    I wouldnt recommend buying a homemade incubator for refund purposes. Get a new one made by a legitimate company.

    Well, it LOOKS alright, but unless you can get a guarantee in writing, you're taking your chances with a private party.

    I bet you could make that yourself easy. Just heat, thermostat, fan, in a stryofoam box. If you have to buy, I agree, get one from a company vs someone's DYI project, unless of course it was your DIY project and were ready to tweak with it.

    I took a look at the feedback and counted at least 125 positive feedbacks for that item. One buyer left a negative. With that many feedbacks since mid November, if that is a homemade, someone is keeping very busy building them. If you like the price I'd say go for it.

    Thanks for all your replies. I did think about making one myself with Miss P's instructions but wasn't sure I was up to the job! I won't rush into anything. [​IMG]

    Incubator made in Europe should be fine. Try and get a auto egg turner.
     
  10. Looks fine for a starter incubator.
    If you like it , ask all the questions you would like to know to the seller before auction is over , if you still like , I would give it a try.
