    I found a bunch of old incubators in our old hatchery. About 7-8 of them I will post some pics. I was just wondering if anyone knows about old incubators. (they look like antiques wooden and i think a castiron)

    Are these tabletop or cabinate type?
    Brower made a round tabletop metal one, and they still have the user manual on their website.

    If these are the redwoods, then you have incubators that are better then anything on the market today.

    A couple of the manufacturers were Leahy, sears, Humidaire

    I cant wait to see pics of them. I have a couple of old wooden ones, a table top and one that is on legs, they are out in the garage. The bator Im using now is an old red wooden cabinet one that I got at a yard sale for 60.00. I was told it is an older sportsman. I had a turner put in it last year, so the trays that was in it dont fit now. I had to make new trays that fit. .....................
