When I was in high school vo-ag (about 12 years ago) I bought a still air incubator for around $26. Now that I'm back in the chicken business I thought I'd go find another one since... around here things get lost or tossed without any remorse. I went to 6-7 farm supply stores to find that the price has over DOUBLED since 1996. When did that happen & why? I ended up making a homemade incubator out of a styrofoam cooler instead. It maintains the temperature & humidity surprisingly well. It's not the most attractive device I've ever seen but it's getting the job done.
