How do I make a home made incubator


In the Brooder
May 9, 2015
Ok, I have 4 ducks and 2 geese 3 are boys and 3 are girls. All the girls started laying eggs awhile ago, but none of them are broody. I really want to have some ducklings and goslings again so I want to make an incubator. I would really like it to be simple to make, under $20, and good for both duck and goose eggs.

Hi :welcome

Glad you could join the flock! I'm afraid I've not made an incubator myself but I've found this article for you >

If you type "Home made incubators into the search box above there are many threads and articles on making them. Wishing you the very best of luck with your incubator build I hope it works out for you and you are able to hatch some ducklings and goslings.

Enjoy BYC :frow

Out to pasture
Yorkshire Coop has given you an excellent link. Incubating chicks with a top notch 'bator isn't easy and making one as cheaply as you can doesn't spell success to me. So be prepared to loose a lot of babies till the kinks are worked out and you know all the ins and out of dealing with one.
