    Day 1 eggs are going well, finally the incubater I made stayed on 37.5 c I made it, so its not that good but I think it might just work even though I cant turn the heat up and down, so if it gets to hot I have to figer out a way to let some air out and if it gets to cold well I have to close it up more. Last night I was thinking because im not an adult I dont know how to make stuff ( not really KINDA) I thought I might just let it run by it self, like if it gets to hot well I would open it up but if it goes down to 36.0 c I would just leave it to see what it would do I kept getting up in the middle of the night to see what the temp was at one stage it was 39.0 c!!!!!!! But I fixed that, anyway this morning and today gladly it has set it self bettween 37.0 c and 35.0 c im so so so GLAD!!!!
    I will send throgh some pictures and please give me some advise Thanks

    Did you build closeable vents into the bator? It may sounds silly, because I have never built a bator, but it would make sense to me to have a vent or vents.

    Maybe it is possible for you to drill a few holes into it ?
