    I always wanted an incubator, but not really a foam one. I reserched incubating eggs alot, and have taking many tips from this form. So i know the basics of incubating eggs. I have been raising chickens for years, just let the hens do the work, but I wanted to give this a try. I was wondering if anyone has used this model, I dont know much about it, I found it on ebay, [​IMG] It is brand new. I tried finding more info online, but couldnt find any.

    This is what the add said:

    Chicken electrical thermostat incubator

    This ad is for a chicken electrical thermostat incubator with new European technology does 60 hen eggs, 42 turkey hen eggs, 50 duck eggs are 30 goose eggs. Has a large fan and led light to know when it is on is designed to hold a uniform temperature.

    With European technology, is it going to be the correct voltage to use here in the US?

    That's good. It's cute. Only issue i see is no egg turner. You'll have to let us all know how it works.

    Interesting. When it comes, you could google search the manufacturer and see what you can find out. I would hope it includes an instruction manual as well.

    So, now that you have the handy-dandy new inkie bater coming, you need to document all criticisms - likes and dislikes - so that we may all subscribe to this post and read them and decide if we should purchase this newly acquired inkie bator
