    Make a home incubator out of a plastic tote?

    Styrofoam cooler does insulate better but I know some like using clear plastic containers or glass aquariums for hatchers because they can really see the chicks hatch.

    Really? Can you tell me what all you did to get it to work and do you have pics. I am wanting to do something like this with my kids.
    As an experiment.
