Home Made Bator

  1. Guitartists
    I built my incubator by following Miss Prissy's 'Chic Chick Bator' instructions. https://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=8510 I added a small hatch on the side for easy turning of eggs without letting all the heat out. Worked pretty good :) I hatched my first batch of eggs. On day 18 I had 25 eggs and 20 of them hatched just great! :D
    Here's my bator....

    Computer fan, thermometer, digital thermometer/hydrometer, water heater thermostat. I covered them with hardware cloth
    after one chick stuck his wing in the fan and one got too close to the posts on the thermostat. Both are fine :D
    And my wiring diagram :D
