    I will try to build an incubator :) I was thinking about buying one online, but the good ones run about $200+ [​IMG] so I will see if my 'KYDLE-Bator' is worth building! [​IMG] please stay tuned and I will update as I make progress! Thanks.

    I will be making two versions of this incubator, one will be a regular styrofoam cooler you can find at walmart (or where I will be getting mine which is United Supermarkets) which will be named 'KYDLE-Bator 01' and the other I will build from scratch out of wood so I can make it however I want to instead of being limited to the dimensions of the styrofoam cooler which will be named 'KYDLE-Bator 02'



    These are the supplies and prices for the KYDLE-Bator 01 aka Styrofoam Cooler.
