Incubators and Brooders 

How to Hatch and Raise Chicks 




The principle of this Incubator is simple. The lamp is in the centre and only has six 
inchf'S to radiate hieat to the farthest egg. 

You adjust the regulator to open when the thermometer reads above 103. 
This incubator requires no applied moisture as the current of fresh air passing through 
it carries enough. All that is necessary is to run it where it gets fresh air. 

These ,S0 egg incubators are wonders; they certainly will hatch, and chicks are always 
strong and vigorous. Beginners can run them from the start. They just need common sense and one gallon of oil to make 
the eggs hatch successfully. 

Every home should have one to raise fresh meat and eggs for the table, 

The Brooder Hatcher is a very papular machine. As you have a complete outfit for the beginner, in that you can 
hatch the chicks, and also brood them and thus take care of them the day they are hatched. You can brood a batch under- 
neath and incubate eggs above at the same time. 

These Cycle Incubators only hold 50 eggs, but it is the best system, even for plants where 200 or 300 egg capacity is re- 
quired, as you can have several machines running and start one as soon as you collect 50 eggs, and then start a second 
one a little later, and so on. 

Fresh eggs hatch better, and in saving up several hundred eggs some get stale and do not hatch so well. 
Full directions with each machine. 


CLEAN, SAFE AND SERVICEABLE Small size, $10.00, Large Size $12.00 

This Hover is made in two sizes. The 24inch one will brood up to 75 chicks and the 30 
inch one up to 150 chicks. It is constructed on a Central heat principal. 

The Lamp is inside a galvanized compartment and no fumes can get at the chicks, nor 
can the chicks get near the flame. 

Very little oil is required to run this Hover as the lamp is in the centre and the heat 
radiates all arOund. 

The machine is built very strong, and is shipped fully equipped ready for use.
