Need to Borrow Incubator: Incentive! Columbus OH Area
« on: May 20, 2021, 08:09:34 am »
Hello!

I really need to borrow a very nice incubator, transportable, for my chinese goose eggs that will arrive within a week - it was a time-sensitive thing, one batch left and I got it  :trophy:. It's a bit more affordable than live goslings.

Would anyone be so kind as to let me borrow their incubator? I am willing to offer you a gosling if enough successfully hatch! :fc: I hear they are loyal and protective, which is why I'm going to hatch some. We have chickens and are concerned about birds of prey so far.

I thought of building my own incubator but the fancier ones with fans and thermostats will take a lot of time to develop, and I don't have enough of a budget to buy a surefire incubator that instills confidence. These eggs were not that cheap :raining:

I am within Powell, OH and am willing to travel around 20 miles or so to pick it up!  :&> :&> :&>

If you getting your eggs from the post - beware. There is always a risk they might get damaged in transport - it could be something like tiny membranes etc breaking inside causing the eggs to be unable to be used for hatching.

Sometimes it is cheaper to get chicks/ducklings/goslings instead.
Unfortunately I'm addicted to buying eggs  :roflanim:

Hello might I suggest you buy yourself a good second hand brinsea polyhatch they are idiot proof and very reliable.
I wonít borrow incubators and if itís for geese they are messy buggers get yourself a hatcher they arenít too expensive.
I used to hatch 700 geese a year get your humidity right and your away.
