    I have a GQF incubator and a GQF hatcher for sale. Neither has seen much use, always kept indoor, in like new condition. Hatcher has a clear acrylic door. Asking $450 each or $800 for the pair. I paid over $1600 for them less then two years ago.

    1600 was including the shipping, clear acrylic door for the hatcher, egg trays...ext The price did not seem bad in the catalog, that was until it was totaled up, yiks!
    I got my first GQF sportsman decades ago, paid 350 for it very used, and it lasted me another 8 years. They are great, always had at least 98% hatch rate. Sadly no longer have the time to hatch so many babies...
    So what is the used market value for my GQFs?

    What you're asking doesn't sound unreasonable if they are in very good condition and have a few extras. They sell new on ebay for $500 plus $90 shipping. The incubator/hatcher set can be bought for $1000 new plus $120 shipping. So $800 plus actual shipping costs is not unreasonable.
