    I had a homemade one, only hatched 4 out of 18 [​IMG] Took it apart didnt work
    Bought one off ebay...Paid $120 for it, got it here and SOMEHOW, the styrofoam was broke! SUPPOSABLY in shipping but OF COURSE i didnt get insured shipping, and this was supposed to come with an auto turner, well it didnt....Pretty much i got screwed out of alot of money i didnt really have to lose.
    Sent it back to the seller and havent heard anything from them since the last email saying to ship it back. Never got refunded or anything [​IMG] OF COURSE just my luck [​IMG]
    Im looking for a VERY inexpensive but good working incubator, willing to trade something for it if your in the same area as me or possibly through shipping if we can figure out a way to do that.
    But i really cant afford to pay more than $20 now that i lost all that money, not looking for a handout, willing to do help with farmwork or other household work ,if your in the same area as me, as a trade [​IMG]

    I'm sorry you got screwed [​IMG] You are covered though by PayPal...go file a claim, and get you money back!

    No pictures [​IMG] it was a sterilite/rubbermaid type tub...All the eggs but one were developing and made it to lockdown and they all had fully formed chicks in them (i did eggtopsys) But only 4 hatched and my silky died after hatching.

    You should still be able to file a claim with your bank. You didn't get what you paid for.
