    that was a farm innovators i picked up on CL for 20 bucks. Its a still air and I was waiting for spacers to install the fan so I tried it out as a hatcher. I like to put a skyflakes container in a hovabator full of water for lockdown but it wont fit in this. I ended up putting a tupperware container in it. One of the chicks comitted hare kare by taking a dip while I was at work. Very depressing. I dont like the thermostat either. Way too sensitive. I amusing digital thermostat to control it.

    I also have a HB Genesis with a picture window. What a great foam bator. Its dead on with its temp control.

    i should have the 220v home made bator finished saturday
