ok, I broke down and bought the bator, from my friend...its an older one....but seems to hold the tem just right...and the humidity. He put a new wafer in it, before he sold it to me so he could make sure it was in good working order...he hasnt used it for a few years. He said he ran it for 4 or 5 days...everything ws good. There are also 2 new wafers...still in the box..plus he gave me a book...A guide to better hatching..by Janet Stromberg Total price..was $50.00 Did I get ripped off....again!?? Here are some pics.... Yup, I am trying the whole incubator thing again...as the eggs in my home made one are 4 days late, and nothing so far...I just wanna try! I wanna be able to say I hatched these babies myself...since my hens dont seem too interested in going broody.
