    Hi,
    I just would like tt know if it would be possible to hatch poultry eggs in a heated plant propergaror?
    Would wrapping in bubble wrap and feathers increase the temperature?
    I can't afford an incubator and I have no broody hen!
    Is it worth a try?
    Thanks Abba

    Can you try and make one? I made a home made fridge incubator for about $20 and it works great.
