    Hey, I was told to try this forum to help with my questions. I just bought at a garage sell a Brower model 486 egg incubator. The previous owner has passed, so I am on my own. I want to hatch some chicken eggs in my classroom in the spring. I live in a suburb of Detroit, but I am sure I can get the fertilized eggs. The instruction sheet is torn in the upper right corner, so the beginning steps are missing. It is put together and appears to be in great shape. I obviously have no idea what I am doing. I am open to suggestions and tips. I want this to be a positive experience for my first graders. I know they would absolutely love it. Please someone respond. Thanks for your support, I look forward to hearing from you. Julie

    Contact Brower and ask for the directions again. That is what I did with an older bator and they were very helpful.
