I want to make a separate lock down box for my chicks to hatch in so that I can set another batch of eggs in the incubator. If you have pictures of one (and description please!) I'd love to hear from you! I have 2 more weeks to go and hope that will give me enough time to figure it out.

What kind of things will I need to put in it? I hope to use a styrofoam container (about 12" x 12") and am only hatching 6 eggs....will that be big enough?

Thank you!

do a search for diy hatcher... a hatcher is just that... for the lock down... some incubators are used as hatchers, like hovabators and such, but whatever works really... my bator is my hatcher... it can handle 55% humidity, and i can hatch on the bottom, wile the racks on top turn... pretty soon, i'll use it that way...
