Well, it's not fancy but I think it will work. designed and built this morning. I was worried the eggs might hatch while I was at work and a new chick be hurt wandering to close to the heat sourse(light bulb) so I installed a plexiglass divider, mounted a circulating fan from a computer and drilled a series of small holes to allow for forced ventilation. I believe this will also allow greater humidification because I'll be able to place the water source very close to the heat source causing increased evaporation.Still need to get a thermostat and hygrometer to moniter the RH. It's only got a 15 watt bulb in it right now. I want to test to see how big a bulb I need to get to 100 degrees.
