    Hi Guys!
    "Rebel Roo" here [​IMG]
    I have 6 Cooler/Bators (of my own design)... too many! I love to build em' but I'm outta room... This one is a 52 qrt. cooler... I've modified the water heater thermostat to hold within 1/2 degree when heated up to operating temp. I've hatched over 1000 eggs in this incubater! Quail, Chickens, Pheasants, Guineas, & Ducks... This one is tried and true! I live in Central SC and was planning on running this as a "pick-up" auction only... but, if you would like for me to check on shipping charges to your zip, just PM me and I'll check for ya!

    I've used the cooler brooders and love them! I've used them for parrots for almost a decade. Because I can't really see in the pictures. How are you controlling the humidity? Do you have vents in it? Tell me all! LOL

    Quote:Hi Laurie... Well. I have 3/16" vent holes drilled around the bottom of the bator, and I have 4 vent holes drilled in the top... two 1/2" holes and two 1/4" holes... all drilled in the 4 cup holders molded in the lid... I use a small 16 to 20 oz. bowl of water with shredded t-shirt strips as wicks... when all holes are open, humidity holds at 50 to 60%... when I want to raise humidity (at hatch time) I stuff dry t-shirt strips in the cup holders where the 1/2" holes are drilled and it raises to 70%... I really don't want to get rid of it! But I've built so many of em' I'm out of room!
    Go to my website: www.RushLanePoultry.com and look at the vids... there are some clips in there of my bators in action! Thanks for lookin' Laurie! Wade
