    I sent my husband out to the barn to get me a cabinet to start my home made bator.
    He return with a hatcher that I had forgot I had because I use it for when my yorkie had puppies. Five pound dogs often need the extra warm when they have puppies.
    He wants me to use it as a bator so he can get out of helping me build the cabinet one. Which isn't happening.
    Can I do that?

    If you can maintain temp and proper humidity it will work.

    Is it big enough? [​IMG]
