    Where I live bators are hard to find unless you shell out some big bucks for one,I saw a cooler with fan and lite and water pan has anyone had good luck with these? If I cant find a fan from a computer is there a different fan I could use?

    Several people have had success, but option #2 is you can always order online.

    Look in my sig line to a link to a cooler bator that I have used. Works great! Also, there is one made with a small dorm fridge and a wiring diagram.

    My hubby and I built a styrofoam cooler incubator and use it as a hatcher. So far we've had pretty good results from it. You can always order a bator online pretty reasonable.
