Neither actually... Let's go with incubator! What kind and can I make one at home from all the spare pieces of arts and crafts in my barn?

Well It depends on what you want. If you have the money I would say go for a forced air table top bator such as a hovabator or brinesea.
But here is a link to home made bators for you to look at if you want to try to make one

I would read up on hatching eggs on the learning center if you havent so you know all the stuff , humidity % , temp , turning , incubation length ect. If they are shipped eggs make shure to sit them pointy / small end down in an egg carton or such for 24 hours befor putting them in the incubator.
