    Hi I am a new member. Happy to be apart of this group :). I have been hatching eggs for about 8 months now. I had an old cabinet style incubator that I was borrowing but I had to give it back the other day. I have been trying to get this little still air incubator to stay at correct temp but can't. I also have a question: I seen on here someone turned a lab incubator into an egg hatching one. I am interested in doing that

    Alright [​IMG] great to have you joining the BYC flock [​IMG]




    Well the first thing in keeping the temp steady in the incubator is to keep in in a room with out any drafts then you might want to try to put a blanket over the top of it but not so tight as the air can not move around the inside of the blanket as the incubator needs to breath [​IMG]

    I have never used anything but forced air incubators, so I can't help you with this one. But good luck with your hatches and enjoy BYC!
