I have been pouring over web sites drooling over incubators wishing I had the money to get some of that stuff. Well I grew up making things work rather than buying them and ya know the old saying if ya want something bad enough you'll make it happen. I also did some thinking and old time farmers probably didn't have such things they more than likely worked with what they had, so I rummaged around the house and the shed and come up with what I think will work. I would love some input on this seeing I have never hatched an egg yet, I actually just plugged the thing in a few minutes ago. So with out further adieu here it is: I put a dimmer switch on top so I can regulate the heat I found (at walmart) a neat little thermometer/humidity combo So here is how I came up with my $$$ figure Bread box - had it Old lamp for light - had it Old picture frame for window - had it Dimmer switch $4.50 plastic dimmer case $0.50 bread pan for water $1.00 Humidity/temp combo $5.00 (4) 75 watt bulbs $1.00 pros cons? please help out I figure i might have to move something or try something this is my first one. Thanks ahead of time!!
