    My first bator is full and due to hatch next Thursday...but I couldn't help myself and bought some more eggs!!

    So here is the second bator I finished last night. Dimmer/bulb for heat...computer fan, etc. The thing I like best is that I added a portal in the front that opens so I can slide my arm in to turn eggs without having to open the top! Also, there is glass on both sides of the top for insulation purposes.

    What do you think?

    Thanks...all. Yes, it may be homemade but it can still look good!! My mama taught me that when she was sewing all my clothes when I was a kid. Then I told my daughter that when I was sewing her clothes!!
