    Use the Search on the Blue Bar overhead under my screen name and MissPrissy's. We've both made several, as well as others. I'm using my Fridge-a-Bator and cooler hatcher right now.

    Can I make an incubator out of a cardboard box and a heat lamp? haha.....I have this crazy idea to hatch out a couple of my eggs. Another thing, how long do I have to get those eggs that I think are fertile to get them into an incubator....

    You have found the right place for that. Miss prissy has excellent homemade incubators in her sig if you find her. She made one out of a potato box, cooler and more.

    Browse homemade incubator in the search and you are sure to find wonderful ideas. Even a skillet used as an incubator! It works, trust me!

    Sorry. I saw you no laughing request after I did. [​IMG]

    Yeah, that'll work but you can't regulate the temp like that. it could be too hot or too cold. I would buy one from TSC or make one yourself. That's the best advice I can give in this case.

    I knew you'd laugh! hehe...Thats ok though. Im having fun. How long do I have until this egg needs to be in a controlled environment? I can stick it in the fridge and start tomorrow too, no hurry...just wanted to give you guys a good giggle [​IMG]
