I had a PM about this & thought it would be a good thread to discuss. https://www.backyardchickens.com/web/viewblog.php?id=30014 This is my incubator that I through together for the contest that I was afraid was going to end before I even got parts to build it. I had only joined the form maybe 3 days before I seen this thread for the contest. To tell the truth I had no idea what I was doing & made aq lot of mistakes along the way. As you can see in the pictures that my heat deflector doesn't fit just right. This is because I first made it out of metal & found that it heats up & keeps heating after the thermostat kicks off & causing to much swing in temp. This is from the PM I received: Hi, I saw your award winning incubator and I was wondering why you didn't go with computer controlled temp, humidity, and tipping (or turning). That is what I'm planning to do. I've been planning on using: http://www.preconusa.com/humidity_moisture_dew_sensors.htm but I'm going to look into the WatchPort now, seeing that you have one in use. I had acquired the Watchport at a very good price & had it on hand to use for a bator already because when I first got into chickens I know I was going to be building a bator. I still have plans on building a turner but I still have the gears turning in my head on how to use a clock ti turn it about 4 to 6 times a day. If you would like to offer ideas on the PC tipper let me know. CPU temp & humidity control sounds like a good thing also but I had not taken the time to find inexpensive ways of doing this. I also got the Watchports to install in my coop & greenhouse. This way I know if it gets to cold or hot in them. I can network them all together & the software is so easy. Not very friendly with McAfee though. So here it is & open for discussion.
