    Ok, I've been browsing this section for a while and now have the urge to hatch eggs. I've started collecting styrofoam boxes (*sigh* yes, plural) from work and have the components to put together a MissPrissy bator. But for another box, I was wondering if a candle warmer (like the $6 one that I saw yesterday in WalMart) would work. I could get it and try it but was wondering if anyone has tried it already? Or if there are downsides to it that I'm not seeing? I wonder if it can be secured to the underside of the lid and with a PC fan also in there.....

    I think it's a neat idea! Keep us posted if you try it [​IMG]
