Homemade incubators

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
My family can't afford to buy an incubator, and my grandpa's incubator was returned to him by who he had loaned it to with some pieces missing. So I was hoping to see some of all of your homemade incubators, and the plans to build it? Right now, to hatch eggs, I'm taking a risk to hope that I'll have a broody hen, lol. Thanks in advance to those who can help smile.png

I put A little light like that in a Styrofoam box we get meds shipped in and the temp went to 120 on a dry run.
