    Friend has a: 'Thermo Scientific Lab line imperial III' Incubator that I'm wondering whether it could be used to hatch eggs.

    It's was made for scientific samples and I know you can control temperature... but I'm wondering if people think you'd be able to convert it to a hatching device. Mostly wondering if people think I'd be able to figure out a way to control humidity. I'm new to hatching eggs in general...

    The specs for it are:
    • Lab-Line Imperial III
    • Model #305
    • Manufactured by Lab-Line
    • 120 volts
    • 400 watts
    • 3.3 amps
    • Unit size: 34.5" H x 20" W x 25.5" D

    Some links with info:

    Trying to figure out if I should buy it from him...

    How did your incubator work out? I am thinking of doing the same.
