The Hatcher And Brooder

  1. BairleaFarm
    I built this hatcher out of a TV stand. The stand, WHT, and sockets ran about 150$. Its not pictures but ive got a metal rack that slides inside which holds the eggs. I can get about 200 eggs in this at one time. Ive done a couple different setups for the lights and WHT to find which way works the best. Currently Ive got a CF light I use to see but it doesnt cause heat so its doesnt affect my temps. The Heat bulb was actually used by my father 30 years ago. Great bulb and still burns hot. One of the thing i like about this is the removable doors. They slide out and make cleaning a breeze. This hatcher is big and isnt really air tight. It uses about 2 gallons of water over 4 days at 70% humidity.
