    I have the opportunity to by a 3 yr old (used about 20 x) GQF cabinet syle incubator that holds about 250 eggs for $200. Is it worth that? Anybody have any experiences good or bad with this kind of incubator?? Please advise so I know whether or not to buy.

    I will give you your money back on it. I would buy the GQF bators at $200 all day long...

    It's a good deal if it's in decent shape.

    Good Deal!! I love mine, I bought my first used for $200, and my second used for $150. I love mine! No matter what you want to hatch you have the space! I have done quail all the way up to emu!

    Have to agree it's a good deal. We have 3 GQF incubators and 1 hatcher and have very good hatches with them.

    Quote:[​IMG] I figured somebody was going to respond like this...very funny!

    So, it is a good deal? Good.

    Can they hatch in there, or do I need a separate hatcher???????? You know, because in my table top incubators, I just take out the turner and it serves as my hatcher...
