Since there is so much interest in home made incubators, I thought it would be helpful if people could share their experiences with incubators: specifically, thermostatically controlled, forced air. 1. What kind of thermostat did you use? Any modifications? Where did you place it in relation to the heat source and the fan? 2. What did you use for heat source? Bulbs? 1 or 2? Wattage? Did you have to make any modifications in wattage or bulb location? Bulb(s)above, or below eggs, or to the side? Even with the fan, did you notice any temperature variation from the middle of the incubator to the sides/back of the incubator? 3. How high did you run your humidity? 4. What was your goal temperature, how well did the incubator maintain that temp? 5. Hatch success? Were eggs shipped, local, or from your own flock? How many eggs set, how many quitters/infertile? If eggs failed, do you have an approximate idea what age, and any idea why? 6. Any problems, recommendations, changes that you would make for the next bator you build, or modifications to the existing one? 7. Other comments related to your incubator and hatch. Thanks, I'm hoping that this will be a good learning experience for all.
