    Hello!!! So a while ago, I bought a dozen eggs (fertile) from Trader Joe’s. My science fair project was to create a low cost incubator that hatched store bought eggs effectively. I decided to go with a plastic tub, which was handy since there were already a couple of holes, a heating pad, towels, paper towels, and wet sponge. Since I already had everything, it cost me only around $2 (for the eggs). Of course not all people have a heating pad, but the one I had, I also found at Walmart for around $10. So far it’s been 6 days, so here are some candling pics below... oh and autocorrect on candling.
