    Just a few pictures of my Refrigabator (refrigerator / incubator). We recycled the trays and fan as you can see in the picture - the only $$ spent was on the temperature controller. The controller cost about $60.00. I have hatched eggs from it all summer and had great turn out. My husband designed it. If anyone is interested on the design, he would be glad to answer any questions. [​IMG]

    Quote:My eggs are set on a 6 day cycle difference - My hatcher is actually made out of an Igloo cooler and when I feel the last one is finished hatching, then I move all the new chicks to an extra large (plastic tote) container that I have my heat lamp attached to. Nothing real fancy on the brooder, but it works.
