    You mean a Hatchette? or larger? Humidaire made a few 'barrel types' some with hatchers, some without

    Here are a few pics. What do you think this thing is worth? It does not have an automatic turner and im not sure its an M-100.

    Is the 100 your getting off the zytron. that the no. of the temp. control. by the look of you photos you have a 200 are you sure it does not have a turner? I was told they all did (200's) they were one of the better ones. can I ask were you got this one? just curious.

    Quote:That is not the original temp control that was just replaced. No it doesnt have a turner. I havent gotten it yet im trying to figure out if these are good reliable incubators and what its worth before i buy it.

    Thats the original temp control unless it had a waffer, the temp control costs $200.00 dollars ( i just bought one for my 21) if its just been replaced is there a pair of red wires attached to the top control if not your going to have to get one, the zytron wont work without it. the list price for a 200 in 2001 is $3499.00

    I have found one local to me for $250.00 It has the replacemnt zytron temp control. He can't read the model #. What should I look for? Was there adecision made about this one. It seems to be the same type as what the OP was talking about.

    I think your the 3rd one this person has tried to sell it to, A BYCer named josh was offered it to, on the 26th, the post has the same title as this one, you might want to read that one also. the model no. should be very out in the open unless someone took it off.

    this type of incubator is not very common.

    when new this bator was priced at 3499.00 in 2001
