    i will post pics as we get it closer to being finished, but basically we took ideas from several other BYCers and some others....

    it is 4 feet tall, and can hold up to 6 motorized little giant egg turners. we are going to build a hatcher separately as I want to use the dry incubation method.

    Ahh, such a lucky gal. We want pics of every step. [​IMG] My DH is working on one of the feeders the chicken has to stand on so we don't feed every sparrow in the county. Soo, I'll have to wait on a nice big bator. I'll have to settle for stalking this thread. [​IMG]

    Yes would love to see pics of every step. I would love to have my hubby build me a bigger one at some time. Right now I have an old cooler that he turned into a incubator that will hold up to 48 eggs, but I have to turn by hand. I don't mind turning by hand but at times I do forget. Right now we are working on buying a house so a larger incubator will just have to wait.
