    yep i know,,,, i never got lucky like this before,,, today after school me and my bro were on the front porch, and he said "what is that on the porch swing?" i didn't know what it was, i actually guessed it was a dehydrator before i opened the top, i saw the inside of it and instantly realized the it was a brower top hatch incubator, i started screaming and i thought it was a dream i guess i was just lucky, and also today i had an art reception at an art center nearby, and i got 1st place there

    I am borrowing one just like this. The light flickers when it is about up to temperature. WE have a sheet on top of it to darken the room a bit. I ordered a 'tower' that will protect (hopefully) the chicks from the hot light bulb (60W). You can download instructions to go with it in Brower.com. Good luck with it!

    i think i am having a problem, the fan and egg turner motor are turning off, and when i pick up the incubator they turn back on, but they go off, is this a fluctuating thing, i dont know?????????
