    I'd suggest checking CraigsList in your area a couple of times a day if you can; and maybe post a wanted ad as well. Several months ago I purchased a GQF cabinet incubator and separate GQF hatcher (both set up for emus/ostrichs) from a CraigsList add. Both units work beautifully, are in great condition, were less than an hour away, and only cost me $50.00 each. I already had exactly the same units at home but just couldn't pass up buying two more.

    What type of eggs are you planning on hatching? I removed the emu egg holders and use mine with egg racks to hatch duck, chicken, and turkey eggs.

    Good luck with your search!

    Cassowary eggs, I just need a extra incubator because I usually fill the other one up fast. They are already breeding, which is very odd...the weather here sucks, and has been very cold and windy, with snow all winter. They usually dont start till the end of march, but I think putting my extra female next to them has caused them to become competitive and they are all in the mood.
