    I'm so excited! I hatched 7 out of 12 in a home-made incubator! I bought the EE hatching eggs and all developed really well for the first 6 days. They are all beautiful and well formed. The bator I used was made of a syrafoam cooler. I saw a video on you tube about how to make it. My boyfriend the electrician did have to add a dimmer switch because it kept getting way too hot.

    Has anyone here had success with a home made incubator before? I'm thinking of trying g duck eggs next![​IMG][/IMG][/IMG]
