    Has anyone ever made an incubator out of an old refrigerator? If so how did you do it and how to make it work well? Thanks ahead of time

    Seems to me that Speckledhen did. One of the little ones that go in dorm rooms. I could be wrong though. Do a search and I'm sure you'll find it.

    Here are some links that may be helpful! [​IMG] (the second link is mainly for a reptile incubator, but it may give you some help with the set-up!)

    (This one is for a Styrofoam bator, which works good as well, but not very large)

    (and here's another Styrofoam bator)

    You should try searching for ways to build one. That is my best advise! [​IMG]
    Good luck!
