So I have been hemming and hawing about this for awhile. I am sure my friends over at are sick of hearing about it. I was borrowing an incubator from my neighbor for the Spring HAL and hatched out a measly 7 eggs out of 42, daycare had another 12 set, and they hatched none. I was supposed to give the bator back after that but kept it for an extra 4 weeks and threw some polish eggs and joined the May HAL. None hatched. Luckily by being involved with this Hatchalong I was able to enter the contests associated with it and won some incubator parts.

Thanks to @Sally Sunshine for the ongoing encouragement, and to @Chaos18 for those pieces he donated I am building an incubator.

What have i gotten myself into

This will take awhile, I am a PROcrastinator to say the least. I also don't have a lot of down time to devote to it. It will take many evenings, weekends and even more adult beverages. We will see.



So here it is so far:

pieces from Chaos, thanks Chaos

and my progress so far, lol






So I have most of the pieces. Th turner arrived from Hong Kong, need to figure out how to put it together.
I need to find an AC adapter, and buy two 40w light bulbs. Someone is giving me some plexiglass for the lid
I can't find my soldering iron so will need to get another one of those as well


luckily i broke one of the coolers a few years ago and my hubby refuses to throw it away, i have commandeered it for this project :) yay me!

I'm already overwhelmed

There's no reason to be overwhelmed, you are over thinking it. If you can wire a house, you can wire this. Just watch Rush Lane Poultry's videos again and again and again, that's what I did and it all fell into place after that. I also suggest drawing how it all goes together a few times---that works wonders for self confidence.
