    Well you can buy replacement parts online. If you want to do it differently a lot of folks use a small/low watt light bulb.

    You can actually get as creative as your abilities will allow. I'm sure someone will come along with much better specifics. I've successfully hatched in an aquarium with foam for insulation and a light bulb. I've also used a light bulb as a heat source in a foam cooler.....
