I have been looking for an incubator. Most of the expense in the chicks I raised to sell this year was from buying the chicks, so if I could hatch the eggs from my own flock, I’d save a lot of money – though I’d have a lot more roosters to sell too. Today my friend Martha emailed me to say she saw a free incubator on CL.
Free Humidaire Incubator, drum type, good for parts, or you can use it as is. I am out of the chicken business and just want it gone.
I called him up, he said come and get it, it was even close to home. I had no idea what I was getting.
Inside is a fan, and above that the racks for the egg trays, which came with it, I just took them out to move it.
What a bizarre contraption! The power cord was cut, and it’s been sitting in the weather a while, but it looks pretty good. I can’t wait to play around with it and see if I can get it working again.
