    It is called Napco 7100 CO2 incubator Environmetal Controller and is available. I really need a bigger one as I cant fit all my eggs in the 3 I have running, but have not been able to find one I could afford. (I am hoping that no one buys it so please dont bid it out from under me I understand that there may be plenty of people about to bid on it but I would hate for my thread here on byc to create a flock of people interested in it who otherwise would not have even noticed it [​IMG]

    but at the same time I have no idea if it would work and I know shipping on it is very high so I need to know if it is a ood deal or the wrong type incubator for my needs. here is the link to it.

    Quote:Shipping wouldn't be cheap but that would still be a deal. Did you see the price on the refurbished units? A rack alone sells for $167. If that unit has the optional RH control then you would be heaven with everything being computer controlled. If you decide to pass on it, I'd like to make a bid.
