    Saw one on Craig's List in "good used condition" needing new humidity pans, he is asking $275 for it. Is this a good incubator? Any advise on the price, & model?
    Thanks!

    depending on the model, they run about $600 to $700 brand new depending on the source. Not sure what a replacement pan would be.

    They are excellent incubators. The humidity pan with an automatic water system is only about 35 dollars. I paid 635 for mine last year new. then added the automatic system. If I find one near here for that price I am buying it.

    Quote:Be careful with this one - I looked it up (Rochester MI) it does not have the auto turner with it so you'll have to either buy one (alot) or turn by hand (ok if you are diligent with it).

    I have a Sportsman with everythi ng and spent 450 for mine. well worth it.

    Sound like it may be a hatcher not a incubator. price not bad and the water pan you can pick up at Walmart.

    No turner on their hatchers.

    Should be able to find one under 250.00 incubator with turner 3 trays and a hatching tray.

    Just seen where a GQF hatcher sold on ebay for 200.00. A GQF Sportman on ebay bid now 285.00 free shipping with buy it now 400.00

    Looks like it has all you need.
