    Has anyone used a lower unit hot water thermostat in a larger homemade incubator? If so; how has it worked? I just found one (thermostat) that has the low setting of 90-120 degrees. I have an old fridge that I am converting into either a hatcher or bator.

    I know they are used in smaller styrofoam bators with some success but what about the bigger ones?

    Someone on here has one that said it would keep temp very well- Do a search - It may have been in the incubator contest post but I'm not sure

    Gabby I did a search, I didnt see anyone with a larger incubator use one. Only ones I saw that used it were the smaller type incubators. Hmmmm .... must be a reason.
