    [​IMG] OK, I need to make a cabnit incubater to hatch more eggs at a time [​IMG] [​IMG] "sigh" so I have some Q, #1 can I make the walls out of wood or does it need to be plastic ? #2 what can I use for heat ? #3 what size fan do I need to use? # 4 Is it possble to make my own turners ? I want to have 2 to 4 turners in this cabnit. so I am going to use 1/4 to 1/2 screen for shelfs. I was thinking I can order the moters and then hook up the turners to this ?? any help is good for me and my little peeps !!!! [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    1. The incubator can be wood, most homemade cabinet incubators are.
    2. You can use light bulbs, ceramic bulbs, heat lamp bulbs, heating element kit from Ebay, (heating element from a toaster, dehydrator, or an old styro foam incubator.)
    3. The fan should be big, You could use two desk fans or a big fan. There are fans specifically for incubators that you can buy from Ebay.
    4. You can make your own egg turners, but I use 2 little giant egg turners. Here is a picture of my Fridge incubator set up. And a few other pictures.
