I believe I read some where that
a person used a crock pot to incubate with
a bowl of water to keep humidity up.
does anyone know of this and the sucess rate?

Not a Crockpot, but I have heard of an electric skillet being used.

I was wondering if an electric skillet or crock pot could be used...maybe not a great hatch rate, but it would be interesting to know if anyone was brave enough to actually try this.

I can't imagine that the heat could go that low. But then again, the skillet incubator, I never knew they could be that low either. If the heating element on a crock pot could do that, then get one from someone that broke one, place it in a ice chest !
Keep us posted on that!

Years ago, we hatched duck eggs in an electric skillet.  You have to keep them damp, turn them three or four times a day.

Good Luck,

ep  How interesting!  I've never heard of such, but I can see where it might be possible in a crock pot.  Hmm...
