    I have an incubator (one of the better kinds forget exactly the make/name but roughly QCF??sportsman~ I could go look it up but am sitting and relaxing at the moment) fine except this past year the turner mechanism broke. does anyone know or can quess what the value would be without it if I sold it as is??? and/or what it would take to fix it for resale? I think I am just going to look for one of the smaller (probably more unreliable incubators ) for the few eggs I hatch each year. thanks [email protected]

    Sportsmans usually run at about $650.

    But without the turners working you'd be hard pressed to get $500 out of it.

    The new Hovabator 1588 now has a digital read out. Talk about plug and play!

    I have seen many fully functional sportsmans for sale on CL for 300-350.
