    ok some pics of the incubator i have... what do you think?
    http://sokore.wordpress.com/2010/11/18/my-incubator/
    I have a few questions:
    1: will i need a thermometer or something to check the temp at?
    2: what is the "ideal" temperature?
    3: Humidity? How much? how to make it humid?
    4: Will i need something to keep the eggs propped up?
    5: How often do i turn the eggs?
    6: How many eggs do you think this incubator will hold?

    Hello there. I am on the last few stages of finishing my homemade incubator so I also need lots of advice. Good luck and I will be watching your post.
