    I found a GQF 1202 With Automatic turner, electronic thermostat, and hatching tray.. I do not have a photo and forgot to ask about the door if it has glass. He described it as being a laminated plywood, like formica. I dont really Need it, but would buy it if it is a good deal. what is a good deal on this thing. 200???

    If it works well and is in decent shape then $200 would be a real deal..Often they go for $300 or a bit more..A friend of mine has had two 1202's for abut 25 years..A good bator'..

    If it works, and doesn't look like its been dragged behind a truck, I'd scoop it up before she changes her mind...

    I just picked up the GQF 1202 He sold it to me for $175 and wants me to hatch a few BC Marans when mine get started laying. It was 1202 barely used, Hatching tray,no window, elec. therm 4 of the galvanized trays, one with cover, and six egg racks, those plastic deals. My BC will start laying in about 24 weeks and I will happily hatch a few for him when I do fertiiity test etc. Real nice guy just wanted someone to use it.

    I think I did ok.

    ARe the acrylic doors available for these? I know we dont really need to look but what the heck who doesnt like staring at eggs.

    The clear doors can be ordered from GQF in Ga. either off the website or you can call them and order one. They are around $58. well worth the money!

    I just recently got a great deal on a GQF hatcher, I am using it as a incubator now and it's working great!
