    I have this for proofing my home made bread but as a chicken person I see it's possibilities for hatching. It holds temp. very well and humidity. It of course has no egg turner but that could be improvised.
    You could turn the eggs yourself and then hatch and brood in it as well. ( small hatches)

    Looks nice, but is it very sturdy, it needs to be something that a cat or toddler couldn't push and it collapse completely. (Being a foldable incubator)
