    Okay, here's a question. I picked up one of the old, round, aluminum.tin incubators at a garage sale last year. I meant for it to be used for an FFA project, but noone seemed interested in chickens.

    Now that I have my own chickens and have raised them to laying age without problem, I'm considering trying to incubate some eggs. Does anyone still use these old round incubators? This one had obviously never been used, still had the instructions inside. We've plugged it in and it works fine. Naturally, I know I'd have to check the temp accuracy before using, but is there any reason I couldn't use it?

    I'm not quite ready to buy a new incubator and I really only want to do a handful of eggs, so any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
