    I have saved the plans for every home-made incubator in this hemisphere I think! This is gonna be one fun project. I think I am gonna use a servo made for remote-control airplanes to move my egg-turner automatically. The egg-turners online seem to lean about 45 degrees one way and then, roll over to lean about 45 degrees the other way. Am I visualizing this correctly?

    I would like to be able to regulate my humidity automatically and, don't have a clue how to go about it. Could someone direct me to the device I would need to regulate humidity.

    I have a home made one going - its got a manual turner though - I figure I can turn it when I leave for work, when I get home & when I go to bed. That is 3 x per day -

    Its not anything more complicated than a board on a pivot, like a teeter totter. Its been working flawlesly so far. I'm on day 12 of my first hatch. So we will see how many actually make it.

    I have a feeling I'm going to be doing a lot of this in 2011.
