    Ok that figures I tried 3 times to post 3 times no luck. Found this forum looking for diy incubator ideas then enjoyed reading posts so I joined. I will need help on first hatch. Thanks for all the help already.

    This is a shoe string budget so I started with a rocker turner which I completed tonight. Now to save for heater fan and control which should be easier to put together than rocker. Thanks all for welcome.

    Nice to meet you Shawn. I've never incubated eggs so can't offer any expertise there. You might put "home made incubators," in the search box and see what pops up. I know a lot of folks build their own - sometimes with very good results. They also discuss what components they use etc.
