Hi Incubating for the first time and due to the high prices here in the UK for equipment, and because i'm keep to have a go and make something better than i could afford, i've tried building my own. Have done some research, youtube and the odd chapter in "Incubation - A Guide to Hatching and Rearing by Katie Thear. What do people think? This made from Chip board mainly with a MDF front and glass top. Did hear that MDF can give off a possibly harmful............odour ??? I've equipped with a ATC 800+ thermostat keeps the temp to within 1 degree, so it fluctuates between 37 to 38 deg C It has two 40w light bulbs with a tin foil reflector underneath each so the eggs are not subjected to direct heat. It also has a Lucky Reptile LTH-32 thermometer and Hydrometer which tells me at the moment that the incubator is 37 degrees and 53% humidity The inside is cover in heat reflective silver film, the idea is t reflect the heat all around so there is consistent temperature all around. I've also made a wire rack out of stainless steal rods from a BBQ rack, and an egg turner. I have a small lid with about 5ml of water in. It seems to keep humidity at around things 49 - 54% usually 53% There are 2 10mm air holes in the front at the top, and i've also left the front ajar by a couple of mm as the incubators humidity was rising to the mid 60s, just concerned that there isnt enough air circulating, other accounts talk about lost of water being required. Any feedback would be greatly received.
