    Have you tried your local county extension office or 4-H. I was able to borrow a Hovabator incubator from our local
    4-H. After hatching, I just returned it. The 4-H leader was really helpful and FREE is always so nice!!

    Best wishes on hatching! It's so much fun. [​IMG]

    OK, when I was a "kid" Sturbridge Village used to hatch monthly! [​IMG] I would try asking them to hatch for you for a fee???
    BUT this was also 20 years ago so not sure they still do it. Its worth a try.

    You might also consider just buying your own incubator. It may come out more convenient to do it yourself.
    If you are patient and have a few basic handy skills, you can make one for a coupla three tenners.
