    I got the following used incubator and it came with Ostrich egg cradles instead of the chicken ones I need. Does anyone know where I can get the chicken ones I need, that would fit this incubator? It is caled a Total Hatching System or at least that is what it says on it. Please take a look and let me know if you know where I can get them or if you have any ideas on what I can do instead? I would also like advice and opinions if anyone has any... I used a styrofoam before and had 100% hatch the first time and 0% the second time... So thought I would try a used, more expensive bator this time... Thanks [​IMG]

    ups i don't know and as information, the bator price don't always reflect the quality.

    as long as temp and humid good and of course no power outages, $5 will better than $100 bator that can't keep good temp and humid. [​IMG]

    Quote:True sooo True... But I had $100 burning a whole in my pocket and my son stepped on, and broke my styrofoam bator so this was a great deal...

    [​IMG] ups, i never let anyone get closer than 2 meters from my bator, i make a big warning for everyone to read and spend only $4 for my styro bator.

    It's hard to see how the trays fit in from your photo. If you can take out the ostrich ones, just make a tray that'll take a normal egg carton.
    Take a look at my BYC page to get an idea of what I mean.
