I would like to thank the byc group for helping me and my eggs out! I built this incubator this morning and I must say I feel like a proud momma. I used a medium size tote, two pieces of styrofoam insulation, tin foil, duct tape, chicken wire, a pie plate to hold the terry cloth, some spacers, the light bulb part of an old paper lantern, 60watt bulb, a piece of plexiglass, a thermometer. I cut out the holes for the light, the viewing screen (in the lid) and the air holes. Then duct taped the styrofoam to the insides of the tote and the light in place. I lined the inside of the tote with tin foil, including the lid (around the viewing screen). Set the pie plate with the terry cloth at the bottom, put the spacers in ( I used concrete core pieces but anything will do), set the chicken wire on top. I duct taped the outside edge of the chicken wire first ( it seems to be the thing to do and it makes it easier to handle). Then I alllowed for some warming time, I got the temperature to 100degreesF. Perfect! Next came the eggs! I do have some questions, as this is my first time. Is it important that the eggs don't touch? Is it necessary to turn the eggs three times a day ( except for between 11-14 days)? Also have I done anything wrong? I don't want to be a bad momma. Thanks for reading/ supporting/ being awesome chicken people!
