    Well i made an incubator to hatch my chicks in but I bought one of those incu kits and it just is too small for a cabinet incbator that I made. Where can I get a large one that I can put in? Any one please. Dustin

    Is your incukit the one with a digital thermostat. If it is, you should easily be able to take the thermostat off of it. You could get 2 small metal desk fans, or a large incubator fan, and wire the thermostat to a porcelain lamp socket. I have just built a cabinet incubator. Here's a link to it. I didn't use a digital thermostat though. I used a wafer thermostat.
