    i dont have any pics at the moment but my dad went to this ol' tractor sale and saw a incubator for only a few bucks! can you beleive it? it was only like 5 dollars for everything you need for a incubator! it is the same one i borrowed from a friend long ago to hatch some unknown breeds and it worked like a charm! and as far as i can tell this one will work like a charm too!

    umm not sure it farely good size it can hold like 50+ eggs at once and it holds the heat in great! it is all closed in except for a little 6+ inch circle window that lets you take a peak it is the only bread of incubator i have ever used and i have alwasy gotten chicks out of it! [​IMG]

    awesome awesome!!!! All i have right now is an LG...it's doing deciently hatch rates arent taht great (out of about 70 eggs I got 23 chicks hatched..haha)...however it's a still air so humidity is hard to get to all of the eggs and that's prob most of my problem..i really dont like styrofoam incubators tho i really want to get something that's NOT styrofoam is yours??
