Has anyone installed a humidifier in their incubator? I have a homemade incubator that has room for a small humidifier and I like the idea of adjusting humidity without opening the incubator. I heat with wood and my house tends to be very dry. My incubator has a large door so all humidity is lost when I open it, so the humidifier seems like the perfect solution. Please post your experience or thoughts. Thanks

I tried one. You can read about it here: https://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=275346&p=1

never really got it to work because I got rid of that incubator and bought a Brinsea. I found a reptile humidistat that looked like it might work with it but I never got around to ordering it. I still have the humidifier . If you want to try it PM me an address and I'll send it to you. I'd love to see somebody get it to work.
