    I have an old hovabator 2362N model that still works really well. However you can't actually see into it very wel, both windows are very scratched and small and you can only see whatever is directly under them I was thinking of getting a styrofoam cooler and using the hating and fan from the hovabator to heat it. Has anyone done something like this before? Does it work? Or, is there anyway to cut bigger, and replace the windows in my current one? My hens just started laying again and I'd like to get this thing up and running so I can start hatching!!

    You can probably get some plexiglass cut to fit the holes or order replacements from the website.

    I have gotten the widows from Meyer hatchery, but I live down the street from them and I don't pay shipping. Plexi glass should work. You can take the windows out and make the right measurements and cut out.
