This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1884 edition. Excerpt: ...seems to be no appreciable evaporation in six weeks. I worked for some years one of C y's in which the water had to be changed every twelve hours. The advantage of the self-acting damper is especially felt when the drawer is filled at different times, and the chicks hatched out a few at a time. With any other system it is extremely difficult to make up exactly for the loss of temperature when a few chicks are withdrawn, but with your Incubator all anxiety is at an end. I am, Yours, H.

Finding the chick moving, I have fastened a piece of postage-stamp paper over the hole, and the chicks have hatched out in due course. Chornet Grange, Leek, Staffordshire, Feb. 22nd, 1883.

I have never tried any other Incubator, but have seen them at work, and from what others have told me, I think yours is the best and the easiest managed. Yours, AUGUSTUS C. COLVIL. I find your Coster Mother to answer admirably. Caterham, Surrey, March 8th, 1883. Dear Sir, In November last we purchased one of your No. 11 Incubators, and we have much pleasure in informing you that we are thoroughly satisfied with it. We placed it in the hands of a person quite inexperienced in the working of Incubators, and he has, after carefully perusing the instructions, succeeded in keeping the temperature of the egg drawer at a minimum of I02, ' to a maximum of 10'. between the 12th November and the 4th January, after which date no record has been kept, as the machine worked so successfully.
