    i want to build an incubator. i have rounded up all the electronics and now need to figure out what to use as a cabinet. i want it to be able to hold ~75 eggs (i want 30 hens/hatch). i have looked at others constructions here, and saw some great ideas. i plan on putting the light at the bottom, and the sensor at the top of the cabinet. i am going to make PVC egg turners. unfortunately, i dont have an old cooler/fridge laying around. or any box type thing

    any great ideas for a cabinet source?

    thanks

    so it took some searching, but i think i found it. an old TV. after i removed the tube and electronics, it is plenty big for my needs.

    chicken TV, i love it.
