Building a homemade incubator

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hi,

 

I am interested in building my own incubator but I honestly have no idea when it comes to electrical things.

I found the incubator post with a lot of different homemade incubators but it there anything that can give me a step by step guide on how to wire a thermostat, fans, and light bulbs together? Like I said I have absolutely no experience with electrical things and I don't want to catch anything on fire.

It seems like from what I gathered that you use a water heater thermostat to control a light bulb to use for your heating source?

Or do you use something else as your heat source? the fans should stay on constantly right so it would need to be wired differently?

There are a few threads on here that do.

But if you want to watch a video try a search for Rush lane poultry on youtube
He has several videos on homemade incubators. With step by step instructions.
