    OK so I have 3 banty hens who have been setting on eggs for a long time and 2 of them hatched out 6 chicks
    together and only 1 died. When they set on eggs again I want 2 put them in a incubator. I have seen other people's
    homemade styrofoam incubators and I wonder How Do You make them??..

    you can make them a ton of different ways. the structure doesn't really matter, but the things that are most important are having something that gives off heat, having water, and having something to control the temperature. (it's also a good idea to have a barrier between the heat source and the eggs so direct heat doesnt hit the eggs and that the chicks don't burn themselves.)
