    Hello everyone, I have this incubator / hatcher ? not sure which but thinking hatcher, by Humidaire. I don't have pics yet, but will get them, it is wooden, with a green trim, has a rounded back end where the air circulates around the eggs, has a bottom door with 7 drawers with wire bottoms and wire tops, has a metal pan in the bottom section as well.
    The Top section has its own door that folds down like a shelf, with the same fancy green trim and the fan and heat element and all the electrical are in this section.
    On the side there are 2 thermometers or one is temp and the other may be humidity, several turn knobs, a power box that has actual old screw in fuses.
    The very top has a sliding section on the front side that has 2-3 inch holes that align when you slide it one way or the other opening and closing the holes.
    The back of the incubator / Hatcher is trimmed in the same green material, but instead of being flat is like a half round drum sticking out from the whole back end.
    I will get this cleaned up and pictures taken so you guys can hopefully help me figure out what Model , Maker, and age this is. I am hoping to either fix it up to use for a hatcher for our 4-H Heritage Breed Program or trade for a newer hatcher say a GQF model.
    I will also take any offers for the Vintage Piece, and hopefully be able to get a Hatcher that we can use, that is more the size we need.
    I went to pick this up site unseen, and paid for it since the fella had pulled it out of the building to load, it is Huge, and I really don't have a place to use it due to its size.
