I just decided about fifteen minutes ago that I'd like to incubate chicks for the first time. lol! I've raised chicks before, but I've let their mothers hatch them. I don't have an incubator yet, which brings me to posting this. I'll post below what I'm looking for in an incubator. Looking for: * either homemade or made under $60 * holds between 10 and 20 eggs. * reliable? Yes/No (Is this one you've tried?) If it's homemade, I made a little chart. If you could please fill it out to the best of your knowledge I would greatly appreciate it! Materials (list price here): example - 60 watt lightbulb ($8) aluminum foil ($3) thermometer ($2) etc. Assembly Instructions: 1) 2) 3) 4) 5) etc. Please help me get started! Just for head's up I might PM you with incubating instructions considering the incubator(s) you mention. Sorry if this is confusing!
