    Glad your power outage was short. I had a terrible time hatching my first batch of eggs I gave $60.00 for back in the spring. Everything went wrong that could have on top of having a terrible incubator. Anyway, the power goes out one day and I do not have a generator, so I take the incubator to my dad's house since he does have one. I get everything hooked up and going, and the cord got caught on my shoe as I walked away and pulled the incubator off the table onto the floor. Broke about half of the eggs, and in the end none of them hatched. I built two homemade incubators since then, but haven't really had the heart to try hatching anything else yet.

    is it hard to build your own or is it cheaper to buy one?
