    I was just looking at Miss Prissy's Homemade incubator - If I recreate that (fingers crossed) will that work for my hatcher?? As long as my temps are up and my humidity is correct - and there is enough air exchange going on I'll hatch some eggs (as long as they are hatchable) right?

    Gosh I am so nervous but don't have the money to buy a second incubator !!

    thanks everyone!

    I use a homemade bator as both my main bator and as my hatcher. It's working really well for me right now to have two since I've been staggering my start dates for eggs.

    Yes it will work. You need to get the temps and everything regulated and stabilized a couple days ahead of time.

    I use my Fridge-a-Bator for my hatcher when I dont have too many eggs to fit in it. I love it. It holds temp and humidity way better than the HovaBator and has a big viewing window to boot. It's my favorite bator.
