I've heard of car batteries being used to run incubators, but that seems like it might be a bit much. Basically, I've been given permission to incubate eggs over the weekdays in my dorm room (I am a high-school student, and a five-day boarder at my school) since my parents won't watch them. I don't know if this is a good idea or not (I'd rather not have commentary on that part of it) but I wanted to know if there is a way to get a relatively small incubator that can run itself on batteries. Is this just a fantasy? I've looked it up and I'm not sure they exist because the battery might go out and the chick will die from the cold. But if I'm constantly there to monitor and change the batteries, is it possible? Thank you.
