I made an incubator out of a cardboard box and a digital thermostat, i use a 60 w lamp to provide the heat. A pc fan blows on the lamp in the box. I cover the box with a glass to be able to see the 2 thermometers and also to see the egg when i turn it from the outside with a piece of metal wire. The thermometers and thermostat wires that count are located next to the egg My question is. Is 2 inches too close distance from the lamp to the egg? will the light hurt the chick in it?
