    Things you will need are;
    hot water heater lower thermostat $10.00
    light fixture for lamp $3.00 (free if you already have an old lamp)
    6' extension cord $4.00 (free if you already have one)
    wire screen $ ?
    water bottles
    aluminum foil
    these are for a still air incubator if you want a circulated air incubator you will also need;
    computer fan
    12v inverter

    there are many videos on you tube that show how to build incubators and if you have any specific questions i would be glad to help as best i can.
