    Hey,
    I just got from a garage sale a Brower egg incubator model #846. Excellent condition, however, the previous owner has passed. So...I have no one to help me along with this. I teach first grade and want to use the incubator in my classroom to hatch chickens in the spring. The instructions and repair list which came with the incubator is missing the upper right corner so I don't know how to begin. I am nervous, and obviously want this to be positive experience with my little first graders. Can anybody walk me through this? I have no idea where/how to begin????Looking forward to hearing from you. Thanks!!Julie

    . This is a wonderful experience for elementary school children. I was a teacher in the 70-80's and we hatched some duck eggs in my third grade classroom. We used only a a light bulb for warmth in a box. Very primitive. Only about half the eggs hatched, probably because we didn't turn the eggs as much as we should have. Good luck on this new project!
