I've never built an incubator but would like to get it right the first time. I'm not crazy about lights for heat sources. I also would like to go straight 120v instead of wiring some stuff 120 and the fans through an adapter. I've thought about it alot and came up with a cheap heater like you would sit on a table top. They have a fan built in and could be wired through a water heater thermostat. I originally thought it would be too much heat but thought about using it to heat an incubator and hatcher/small brooder. Mounted in a way that it intakes through one side and out the other and returns through vent holes to the other side. I'm still contemplating the egg turner issue but thought I would run the heat source idea by some of the experts on here.
