    I just bought a never been used Humidaire cabinet style incubator/hatcher! I am so excited. I have heard great things about them and I found one today and called. It is mine!!

    If anyone has one, I would love some tips or hint on how it works. I know it has a turner and humidity gauge, but other than that...

    I have a Humidaire- incubator and hatcher, I LOVE them. I swear they will hatch rocks! What model?

    There are several on here now that have the Humidaires, they are not in business anymore, but there is a place to get parts/assistance if needed. Shout if ya need help, but beware, it is way to easy to hatch in these.

    Congrats [​IMG]

    Thanks everyone for posting back. He has 4 more left!!!! They were 550 and mine is brand new. I think it is missing a water bottle? I don't know how important that is...

    The back wood is splitting a bit but wood filler and it is good to go. I have it running right now and temp is up to 92 with 32% humidity (no water added yet)

    It started at 72 so were going up anyway!

    ChicknJ, It is a model #21 how important is that water bottle and can I buy one somewhere? Or make one for it?

    I will take a pic of it and post soon, just gotta get the camera charged!

    Here you can see the trays better and the turner is working and turning them! 2 incubating trays and 1 hatching tray on bottom.

    That's awesome - glad you're happy with it thus far!

    You might think about changing your thread title to something with the brand name of the bator in it - you might attract more folks that have the same model that way. Just a thought! Have fun hatching in it!!
