Rocks in my incubator??

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Had a crazy thought.  What do you all think about putting rocks in an incubator to help hold and regulate temperature?  Has anyone done it?  Results?  Thoughts at all?

I have used this method to help regulate temps while preparing the incubator for eggs with some success.

I use (as instructed by Mentor) small jars of water.  You can use a small olive jar, or, I use small jelly jars for canning.  They fit well, although not with a turner, but then a rock wouldn't either, I suppose.

Water works well.  I just put in several bottled water containers.
