    I need a home-made incubator. So if anyone has a successful set of directions for building one then I would be interested. [​IMG]

    Yea i would like one too. something that I dont have to do to much wireing. I'm known to put red with black. Ive seen them arround but there is no exact page to look at. I would be nice to have one added to the how to pages on this website.

    Google 'homemade incubator' and you will find lots of ideas.

    I looked around today, surprised to see that all my bators are homemade. I guess Ive graduated.

    We built a Miss Prissy style bator, liked it so much we built 2 more. Each one cost less than $20 and took less than an hour to assemble.
