    I got this a couple years back on an auction and took it home and it worked after a put couple new bulbs init...seem to be a 50 quail egg incubator. I have done lots and lots of research on this and have not found one like it. It was made by a quail farmer in Baldwyn, Mississippi..if any one knows where i could get more info on it or anything please let me know thanks

    If it is a homemade incubator, then there will not be any information on the internet. If you would post some pictures of the inside, I would be more than happy to help you. I am betting that it has a wafer thermostat in it.

    It does look like the power-aire in the magazine ad,and could be but I recognize It as a Floral Arts incubator . The top window is not original. Two small plastic fans, wafer thermostat on right. Knob on left side for tilting egg tray. I see them on E-bay occasionally. Manufactured in the 70's I believe.
