    Years ago I hatched some baby guineas in a borrowed incubator . . . I wish I could find another one like it.

    It was styrofoam, round, with windows for checking the thermometer and eggs. With a sheet of wire to lay the eggs on and a wafer thermostat.

    If anyone can tell me anything about an incubator like this I will be greatful!

    What you had was an old gqf hovabator. I would guess about 30 years old. They are square now to accommodate the optional auto turner. The 1602n is the current model .
