    Ok i have 5 eggs in the bator there due on the 28th witch is next weekend but i have 2 sets of quail eggs coming this week so there going to be hatching i say a week after the chicken eggs hatch but once the 2 sets of qauil eggs come all the turner cups will be filled and there wont be room to take the chicken eggs off the turner to lay on the rack for them to hatch so i need to make something so that once day 18 come for the chicken eggs i can take them out the bator and put them in that to hatch cuz again there wont be know room in the bator for them to hatch... so do any of yall have idea to what i can make thats cheap and easy?

    Miss Prissy has made a homemade incubator from a styro cooler that is very easy and inexpensive. You could run to walmart and home depot and have it made in no time. Check out her thread here:

    If I can build it anyone can! I have silkie eggs in there now on Day 17 and growing. It would be great for hatching your chickens.

    Good Luck!!! [​IMG]
