    Im looking at buying an incubator for this up coming spring and saw this ad. Is this a good deal? Im only wanting to buy one though. Is there anything I should know or ask her about these? Any help would be great!

    what a great opportunity - buy them all for that price and either use them for spare parts, or get them cleaned up for resale...well worth the price if you'r handy and have the time.

    Thats a good deal even if only one were to function, you would have spare parts for them and could even get more running. if nothing else even 1 would be good, resale the others not needed.
    better If you can find someone to go halves with you and get them all?
    hard to pass up a deal like that , I wish I were closer.

    I wonder when they were purchased "brand new"..

    at $250.oo , I'll bet it was not recently...

    are those outside? or are they under some sort of roof?

    If one of them works, I would buy them all and see how many I could get working..

    How many eggs does just one hold?

    If it holds 100 or more, and works, it would be worth more than the $50.oo askng price..

    Well I just got home from work and was eagerly looking forward to her email. Hoping it would say come and get it. But..no such luck. She said a man called for them and was going to try and get down there(outta town) to look at them. But if he didnt then I was more than welcome to them. So Im [​IMG] that I get to at least look at them. She said they were in a barn and to get better lighting she set everything outside. Which I did notice she had a lot of little odds and ends for sale. Ive been looking for a bator forever! And everytime I seen one within the size I want and the price range I can handle, its always gone! I even thought about asking around to see if anyone has one I can just borrow for a month. Cause I just want to hatch out one set.
