    [​IMG]Hi, wlcome to BYC from Wisconsin...
    this site has many ideas on how to make homemade incubators. if u go to 'learning center, go to hatching eggs, u can find a place where people have posted how to make a hommade incubator on there.

    When i made a homemade incubator i got a plastic storage bin. I Cut a big square hole in the longer side and a circular one on the shorter side closer to the lid. I laminated a laminating sheet so it was clear then i ducktaped it on from the inside to the longer side with a hole. I had a heat lamp so i got the light socket and put it in the circular hole and put foil on the inside of the lid so that the lightbulb would not melt it! I used a 60 watt frosted normal lightbulb and it gets pretty warm! I also get egg cartons and cut the lids off and put them in the botom to hold the eggs! hope i could help!

    You can look on the incubator section of BYC and see many of the ones members have built. I found a bunch of videos on Youtube that showed you step by step how to do it. It's really not that hard to do.
