    Last month I ordered too many eggs for my bator so I went out and bought a second thinking I'd use it as a hatcher. ha Yep, you guessed it I filled it up too. So the other day I was at the Goodwill and saw something called a Brisker. Ding the light bulb in my head went off I could use the heating element out of it to make a hatcher. Well turns out I didn't need to do anything but plug it in. The temp stays at about 97 degrees and the humidity hold at 65% almost perfectly. I know the temp is a little low but when they're at hatch time I figured humidity was more important than temp. I stuck a couple of the eggs due today in it and they're pipping now. I paid $3 for it, so for three dollars and the cost of a sponge I've got a new hatcher.

    I'll post how the hatch goes.
