Hatchery Business in the Late 1920s

hatchery 

Great incubator article (“Chicken and the Egg: Incubators eased work of farm wife’s chore,” Farm Collector, April 2017).

I’ve enclosed a photo of my grandparents in front of their hatchery in Brookville, Indiana. Gus and Katherine are shown, with their son, Roy, on the running board of the Overland Sedan. This photo was taken in 1927 or ’28, according to Roy.
