Okay, so I've decided to build myself an incubator and hatch a few eggs! I'm so excited! I am making it out of a styofoam ice chest because that is what I have on hand. BUT before I get too far into this, I have some questions. - What is the best thermostat to use? I've read to get a hot water heater thermostat but some say those aren't accurate.,? - What bulb wattage is best? I'm thinking either 25w or 40w, which one do you all use? - And finally, how many eggs should be in an incubator at a time? I only need a couple more hens to add to my little flock and I know that some eggs won't hatch and I will hatch some boys. That's all for now and thanks for putting up with my questions! I am a total newbie when it comes to incubating so hopefully this will go well. I will probably remember more questions as soon as I hit submit..
