    It is an old round metal one from Sears and Roebuck. It works great. I have 4 bators now and DH says if I am not using it I need to sell it. [​IMG]

    How much are you asking for it, and how many eggs does it hold? We are on the other side of Ohio (5 miles from IN), but I would be interested in it.

    It will hold 7 dozen (84 eggs) I am asking $35 for it. I will send you pics of it holding the eggs and then closed to your PM. [​IMG]

    So are you going to the sale or the swap?

    I would like to see pics of the bator also.

    What about your partridge penedesenca? How many you got, how old are they, how much you aksing for them or are you running them thru the sale, if thats when you are going.

    I went last year and was in heaven with all of the different breeds of birds aniamls. I seen some I only ever pics of before. I wanted to take pics soooo bad, but wasnt allowed. Its almost a 4 hour drive for me, so after we got there, we ended up getting a room and spent the night. It was ALOT of fun................

    At the swap you should be able to take pics. The exotic sale I don't think you are allowed to. I will be selling at the swap. Right now I only have 1 penedesenca chick. I have 2 more eggs in the bator that are due on the 9th. Hopefully they will both hatch out. [​IMG] I can PM you the prices if you want. [​IMG] Hope you can make it. [​IMG]

    Do I assume correctly that Friday is the best day to be there? Although I assume Saturday afternoon might be the best time to get some good deals. Thanks!
