    i found a old incubator/hatcher for $150 i could not resit gonnna take pics latter on , i am dating it back to at least the 1950's solid wood, i can not tell if it is made out of red would or not, i do not think so. It has four trays and can hold 100 eggs per tray. At the bottom of the tray there is a little metal bar you pull to turn the eggs, it has a fan and a heater thing like a sportsmen but this one is mad by brower (i think), it has a light bulb but i do not know what it is for ?? Any else has/has had this incubator. Any thing i should know about it? I am going to replace both wafers. It also came with the sportsmen auto humidity bucket thing.

    Okay now I am jealous. That is a great looking incubator. I don't know anything about it. I am still trying figure out how my tiny little Styrofoam bator works. Hopefully with your pictures someone will know more about it. Best wishes on hatching. Christina
